Flicker when changing forms/pages
Posted on 1999-07-09
I'm trying to switch between forms or pages in a pagecontrol tab. I have images and buttons etc on these forms/pages but when I switch between them I get bad flicker. I have tried using lockwindowupdate in various places which locks the screen fine, but flickers on unlocking (even my desktop flickers). I've also tried loading the graphics using a canvas draw, and loadfromfile image etc. Setting the brush.style to bsClear to try and overlay forms/pages but nothing seems to work.
I have come from a Toolbook background which is slow for a lot things but seems to handle jumping from screen to screen smoothly with no problem. Does anyone know of a way in Delphi of imitating toolbook's page like abilities. Speed is a partial issue here, but the main thing is to try and avoid flicker.
Thanks in advance.
