I have an application that uses two windows and an edit control that for the most part is single line, but under certain circumstances enlarges itself to 4 lines thus resizing itself and the display window below it.
Display & Main windows have a background of COLOR_APPWORKSPACE.
Edit Windows background is COLOR_WINDOW
In the Display area's paint event I inflate the client area by -4 x and y and then paint that area with FillRect and COLOR_WINDOW
In the routine that resizes these two windows I'm using MoveWindow.
What I'm encountering is severe screen flicker and I was wondering if DeferWindowPos would eliminate this problem, or possible do I have to change something in WNDCLASSEX
I'm calling Windows API not using MFC
