currentTime is undoable, queryable, and editable.When given a time argument (with or without the -edit flag) this command sets the current global time. The model updates and displays at the new time, unless "-update off" is present on the command line.
In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.

import maya.cmds as cmds # Query the current time # cmds.currentTime( query=True ) # Change the current time to "30" in current time units # cmds.currentTime( 30, edit=True ) cmds.currentTime( 30 ) # Change the current time to 2 seconds # cmds.currentTime( '2sec', edit=True ) # Change the current time, but do not cause the model # to update. # cmds.currentTime( -10, update=False, edit=True )
