delayed

Arguments: standard-object

Returns the value of the delayed property of standard-object.

For a scroll-type control such as a horizontal-scroll-bar or a trackbar, the delayed property determines whether on-change is called to update the control's value continuously as the user drags the scroll-box or pointer along the slider, or whether it is called only once at the end of the scroll gesture.

For text controls such as an editable-text or combo-box, the delayed property determines whether on-change is called to update the control's value as each character is typed, or whether it is called only once after the user has finished typing and moves the keyboard focus from the control. If you use the the delayed property on one of those controls but you need the latest value of the control, you may have to use fetch-control-value rather than value. Examples are given in the description of fetch-control-value.

For the split-bar control, the delayed property determines whether side effects occur continuously during a drag, or only once at the end of a drag.

Here are the widgets, along with the values and the associated behaviors.

delayed is a property of the following classes:

combo-box, editable-text, horizontal-scroll-bar, multi-line-editable-text, trackbar, up-down-control, vertical-scroll-bar.
