How to update graphics layer without delay?

Discussion created by ksoto13 on Mar 13, 2012
I notice that when I have a graphics layer with points whose values update from a service every few seconds which need them to be redrawn. Every time I use thelayer.graphics.clear(); then draw new points on the map based on updated lat long, there appears to be a noticable delay where I see the old points disappear for a few seconds, then returning after a few seconds. Is there a better way to update existing points or a way to make it so that I can ensure that the new points drawn appear fast enough such that it doesnt feel like there is a flicker/gap in time when the new one is drawn?
