Request that the stream pauses events until further notice.
While paused, the subscription will not fire any events. If it receives events from its source, they will be buffered until the subscription is resumed. For non-broadcast streams, the underlying source is usually informed about the pause, so it can stop generating events until the subscription is resumed.
To avoid buffering events on a broadcast stream, it is better to cancel this subscription, and start to listen again when events are needed, if the intermediate events are not important.
resumeSignal is provided, the stream subscription will undo the pause
when the future completes, as if by a call to resume.
If the future completes with an error,
the stream will still resume, but the error will be considered unhandled
and is passed to Zone.handleUncaughtError.
A call to resume will also undo a pause.
If the subscription is paused more than once, an equal number
of resumes must be performed to resume the stream.
Calls to resume and the completion of a
interchangeable - the pause which was passed a
resumeSignal may be
ended by a call to resume, and completing the
resumeSignal may end a
It is safe to resume or complete a
resumeSignal even when the
subscription is not paused, and the resume will have no effect.
Currently DOM streams silently drop events when the stream is paused. This is a bug and will be fixed.
