Property of css/cssom/screencss/cssom/screen


var result = element.updateInterval;
element.updateInterval = value;



The updateInterval property can be set to an integer value specifying the number of milliseconds between updates to the screen. A value of 0 (the default) disables the update interval. The interval causes screen updates to be buffered and then drawn in the specified millisecond intervals. This limits excessive invalidations that reduce the overall painting performance, which can happen when too many flipbook-style animations occur at once. Use this property judiciously; a value too small or too large adversely affects the page rendering response.
