DataComm (dc) Resources

This resource is used to indicate if the DataComm object should buffer its response to changes in DataItem objects that are associated with data resources in the DataComm object. If this resource is False, then the DataComm object will immediately update its internal state to changes the user makes to an associated DataItem. If this resource is True, then the DataComm object will wait until the user tries to draw the DataComm object, or they call the UpdateData function.

It may be useful to set this resource True, if a particular data resource has a number of DataItems associated with it and each one of the DataItems are modified. In this case, if the dcDelayCompute resource is True, then the DataComm object will only recompute data extents once, instead of recomputing them every single time each of the associated DataItem objects is modified.

Default: False
