#106 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Gui Double Buffering Flag / exStyle

Reported by: sic_goat Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity:
Keywords: GUI Rendering Cc:


Add an optional flag, possibly an extended style, that forces a created control to render through double buffering.

This would solve all of the "omg flickering" problems (as far as I know _;).

That's rather a lot of work for such a small problem that can be solved in other ways. Not to mention, performance will suffer for those GUIs since drawing is rather expensive.

The best solution depends on the circumstances. If updating one control a lot, only update the control when the content really changes (as opposed to setting the same content repeatedly). Or if updating a large amount of stuff all at once, lock the GUI before updating so that everything is only redrawn once when the GUI is unlocked.

Resolving as rejected.
