Set options for an output object.

outputOptions(x, name, ...)



A shinyoutput object (typically output).


The name of an output observer in the shinyoutput object.


Options to set for the output observer.


These are the available options for an output object:

  • suspendWhenHidden. When TRUE (the default), the output object will be suspended (not execute) when it is hidden on the web page. When FALSE, the output object will not suspend when hidden, and if it was already hidden and suspended, then it will resume immediately.

  • priority. The priority level of the output object. Queued outputs with higher priority values will execute before those with lower values.


if (FALSE) {
# Get the list of options for all observers within output

# Disable suspend for output$myplot
outputOptions(output, "myplot", suspendWhenHidden = FALSE)

# Change priority for output$myplot
outputOptions(output, "myplot", priority = 10)

# Get the list of options for output$myplot
outputOptions(output, "myplot")
