Redraw controls?

2 posts in this topic

I have a GUI that I want so that the user doesn't see all of the controls all of the time. Is it better to delete and redraw the controls each cycle? Or to draw the controls in the begining of the script and hide/unhide them. I want it to operate as fast as possible and to look seamless to the user. I might make 200 cycles of this in a 8 hour period. Just thought I'd ask some that are more experienced.

So what would be the best option to use? (I'm leaning on hide/unhide)

I personally like to create all the windows and controls I'll ever need at the start of the script, then just hide the ones I don't want to see in various situations. With the create/delete method, there is a chance that you might accidentally try to modify a control that doesn't exist anymore. Both methods will look about the same from the user's perspective (there may be a small speed difference in favor of the unhide method).
