The rectangular region of the receiver to mark as invalid; it should be specified in the coordinate system of the receiver.
You can use this method or the
set to notify the system that your view’s contents need to be redrawn. This method adds the specified rectangle into the view’s current list of invalid rectangles and returns immediately. The view is not actually redrawn until the next drawing cycle, at which point all invalidated views are updated.
You should use this method to request that a view be redrawn only when the content or appearance of the view change. If you simply change the geometry of the view, the view is typically not redrawn. Instead, its existing content is adjusted based on the value in the view’s
content property. Redisplaying the existing content improves performance by avoiding the need to redraw content that has not changed.
