offscreenBuffering property

Sets or retrieves whether objects are drawn offscreen before being made visible to the user.

Syntax

JavaScript

p = object.offscreenBuffering

 

Property values

Type: Boolean

auto

Default. String that allows Internet Explorer to decide when offscreen buffering is used.

true (true)

Boolean that enables offscreen buffering.

false (false)

Boolean that disables offscreen buffering.

Remarks

The value of the offscreenBuffering property determines how the current document is drawn. When the property is set to true, objects are added to an offscreen buffer. After all objects are drawn, the contents of the offscreen buffer are made visible to the user. When the property is set to false, objects are rendered directly to the screen.

By default, Internet Explorer decides when to buffer objects offscreen. In addition, Internet Explorer automatically enables offscreen buffering when Microsoft DirectX-based components are used on the document.
