In ArcMap, there is a button to Pause the map's drawing. How do I programmatically call it from ArcObjects Code, before and after my heavy code runs?

IMxApplication2.PauseDrawing Property should be used.

It can be used as follows:

IMxApplication2 mxApp=(IMxApplication2) m_App;
mxApp.PauseDrawing=true;

//do your process here
mxApp.PauseDrawing=false;
m_app.RefreshWindow();
