Starts a batch update of this view's layout properties.
deprecated since 3.0.0
Use the applyProperties method to batch-update layout properties.
To prevent a layout pass each time a property is modified, call
changing any properties that may change this view's layout. This initiates a batch update
mode where layout changes are deferred.
Call finishLayout to end batch update mode and trigger a layout pass. For example:
view.startLayout(); view.top = 50; view.left = 50; view.finishLayout();
Note that any property changes made during the batch update may be deferred until
finishLayout is called. This may vary somewhat by platform. For example, changing the
text of a label may trigger a layout pass. In iOS, updating the label text is
deferred, while on Mobile Web and Tizen, the label text is updated immediately but the control is
not resized until
finishLayout is called.
On Mobile Web and Tizen, this method is included for parity only, and thus has no effect.
