Nevertheless I love Xojo and decided to learn all I can while the issue is being discussed.
I decided to try resolving the windows flicker in the project mentioned above. I’m pleased with the progress I’ve been able to make, but I noticed that after resizing the window things go wonky and start flickering again until the app is restarted.
I don’t think so. I’ve tried saving the order of the controls into an array during the intitial zOrderFix, and the running a method zOrderRefix that used the array to run the same code as zOrderFix on the same controls in the same order. I can’t figure out what it is.
Another think is that it seems like a scrollbar causes it’s parent to refresh every time the valuechanged event is fired. I had to freeze the window when scrolling and manually refresh the areas that needed it.
Took the great project with the scrolling CC from @JulianS .
Changed it a bit: since I need scrolling CC on just a part of the Window,
I’ve put hist CC on top of another CC which also has the scrollbar on it.
Looks like this:
There are still some dead ends in regard to flicker. I’ve done a lot of fooling around and wouldn’t have gotten anywhere close to this without help from @JulianS . The most notable one is after the window is resized flicker again begins until the app is restarted. Also when animating the collapse/axpand for the container that is over the tabcontrol there is flicker.
[quote=346569:@Neil Burkholder]How about this? The IDE is on the left for comparison.
If placing in a tab you need to set the container.parent = nil then manually manage visibility when the tabvalue changes.
