public void DelayEvents (
    bool delay

delay [in]

All calls made to IActiveViewEvents::SelectionChanged are ignored when DelayEvents is set to TRUE.  The event is automatically fired when DelayEvents is set back to FALSE to ensure that clients ultimately receive the event.

This method is typically used when changing the Map's selection.  Without DelayEvents set to TRUE, the SelectionChanged event would fire each time a feature is added or removed; instead, DelayEvents is used so that only one notification is sent when the entire selection operation is complete.
