This property indicates whether the meta-data used to properly configure time-related rendering has been provided.  The property is also used to indicate whether the layer should use the time-related meta-data to render time-related data.  If the property is false, it can mean two things:


1.  The layer has not yet been provided with information like the name of the attribute in the data which contains the time of each feature.

2.  The layer has simply been told not to display time-related data.  This may be a temporary state change desired by a user that does not want the layer to change when running an animation.
