Background Fetch property

Previous Next

This property controls whether a client is to perform record fetching when it is IDLE or not. By default, record fetching will be performed in idle time.

TIP: In windows with many levels of embedded related windows, and heavy use of post-fetch actions and background fetching, so much CPU time may be used that user input becomes difficult and the window may seem to be frozen. If this is the case , it may be beneficial to set a waiting period for the background fetch. You can do this by calling:

SetBackgroundFetchDelay( nMillisec)


When this delay is set, background fetching will only be performed if there has not been a user-event for the last n milliseconds. Other idle-time procedures are not affected. This setting works at application level.
