The status of the current project and the associated links is refreshed at regular intervals. By default, this interval is set to 5s. But from Zoom 6.0 on-wards, users can configure the status refresh interval.
For configuring the interval, add AUTO_REFRESH_
The time is specified in ‘seconds’. So, the above example indicates that the auto-refresh interval is set to 10s. If the entry is not in there in zoom.properties, then the interval is defaulted to 5s.
Tips and Tricks:
- To stop status auto-refresh, set the AUTO_REFRESH_
INTERVAL_IN_PLUGIN property to < 0
- If the auto-refresh interval is set to < 5s, the interval defaults to 5s i.e. auto-refreshing in less than 5s is not allowed.
- Before working with files with a huge no. of layers/links, increase the auto-refresh interval, or else the application may hang.
- Don’t forget to Reload Zoom properties from the plugin after changing the auto-refresh interval.
