FormattingMarksRefreshDelay(System.Double)

The delay in milliseconds before the formatting marks are refreshed. This feature is useful for performance optimization as the formatting marks are re-rendered any time the user presses a key. If the user is typing very fast or holding down a key, the delay will prevent the re-rendering from being executed multiple times.The visual effect from this configuration is that the marks will briefly disappear while the user is typing. You can set the value to false to fully turn off this behavior.

Parameters

value - System.Double

The value that configures the formattingmarksrefreshdelay.

UnsafeInline(System.Boolean)

When set to false, the decoration applied by the Formatting tool dropdown will be skipped and the values will appear as plain text options.

Parameters

value - System.Boolean

The value that configures the unsafeinline.

FormattingMarksRefreshDelay(System.Boolean)

You can set the value to false to fully turn off this behavior.

Parameters

value - System.Boolean

The value that configures the formattingmarksrefreshdelay.

ToComponent()
