I am using a Line Graph to display dynamic data.
I want to stop the graph onClick of a Button.
How do I do it.

FYI- I am sending form data via AJAX and getting response back as JSON.
The JSON response shows me numbers which I plot on the graph continuously.

While that is displaying data, I want to stop the graph on click of a button ?
Should I just stop making server calls. Will that be a solution or is there a way to pause and restart the graph ?

Hi there,

Sorry I may not understand it right
I am updating the graph by
   setTimeout(loadDynamicGraph, 3000);

How do I use the above mentioned functions to pause my timer and stop sending data to the backened so that the Graph is paused.

Hi there,

The SetTimeout() and setInterval() functions both return a reference which you can then give to either clearTimeout() or clearInterval(). Eg:

var myTimer = setTimeout(function () {...}, 1000);

And you can then clear that timer with:
