I have a problem with these methods:
DisableUpdates() , EnableUpdates()
These functions disable automatic updating within the window, and re-enable it again. Any drawing that's done while updates are disabled is suppressed until updates are re-enabled. If you're doing a lot of drawing within the window, and you want the results of the drawing to appear all at once, you should disable updates, draw, and then re-
How do you think we should implement this? Do you how this is implemented in R5? Any other information related to these 2 methods?
I think that to do what the BeBook says ("the drawing to appear all at once") we should draw in a bitmap and when EnableUpdates() is called, copy/blit that bitmap in window's visible area.
Not that my opinion counts much anymore on the server
Hm... are left stepping into this day? Of course IT COUNTS! You are the Team Leader! ;-)
