Use this object when you need to delay, or defer, a share for a few milliseconds. To learn more, check out How to delay sharing.


Deadline Deadline Deadline Deadline Deadline

Gets the deadline for finishing a delayed rendering operation. If execution goes beyond that deadline, the results of delayed rendering are ignored.

FormatId FormatId FormatId FormatId FormatId

Specifies the format id.


GetDeferral() GetDeferral() GetDeferral() GetDeferral() GetDeferral()

Returns a DataProviderDeferral object.
