You might start with something like the all in one video controller at www.mediamacros.com, then you can expand it for the WMV commands.  WMV also works through the MPEG advance Xtra (and it has built in bars). Note that WMV does not seek well so the slider may have a bit of a lag to it.

yes i know that these are some xtra
but all of them is not free
i ask that how can we build it not using another xtra
There is a built in WMV Xtra that is part of Director MX 2004.  Check the director docs for the commands for play, paise, etc.

thanks for u comment,
i can play and stop and pause but
my really problem is bar
as i explain
You can get the currenttime of the movie.and compare it to the duration.  This is the way all sliders work.  Check www.mediamacros.com for a number of slider or progress bar examples.  You can adapt any to show the current time of the movie file
