object.PasteDelay = Value

Works with


Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) how many tenths of a second Reflection is to wait between "paste blocks" when pasting data from the Clipboard into display memory. (See the description for the PasteBufferSize property for information on configuring the size of a paste block.)

In Reflection for HP, PasteDelay has no effect while TypeAhead is set to True. If TypeAhead is False but HostTriggerCharacter is set to the DC1 character (the default) Reflection ignores the value of PasteDelay and waits for a DC1 after each line is pasted.

In Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS and Reflection for ReGIS Graphics, Reflection waits either for the PasteDelay interval or for the number of characters already sent to be echoed back before sending another line.


The default value is 50.

The range of values is 0-500.
