Hi,

I have written some code to implement scrolling within my dialog box, but is is very slow because I have over 100 controls in there. My code is below. What I am looking for is for a much faster and more robust piece of code to implement scrolling.

void DPRMYLDHKDdlg::OnVScroll(UINT nSBCode, UINT nPos, CScrollBar* pScrollBar)
{
      // TODO: Add your message handler code here and/or call default
      //##S

      int mdown = -450;
      int      mup = 450;

Use BeginDeferWindowPos/EndDeferWindowPos WIN32 APIs to move simultaneously all your controls.

Also associated with that, specify the flag that prevents the moved window from redrawing (I don't remember what it is called) and then scroll the window with ScrollWindow()  This will update the screen much faster.

You probably mean the WM_SETREDRAW message.

No, I meant the DWP_NOTREDRAW flag to the DeferWindowPos() procedure.  It is much faster for the OS to move the windows without updating the screen and then just scroll the pixels on screen and finally just paint the small area exposed.

Stanz,

Thanks for your help.
I actually used Nietod's suggestion. I used ScrollWindow() in conjunction with UpdateWindow(). It is extremely fast, easy to implement, and there is no flickering.

Nietod,

Thanks for your suggestion.
I'll post some points for you.

Rgds,
A.
