Updating labels quickly without a flicker
Posted on 2002-07-03
I'm collecting data from a data Aquisition device. Right now I'm only gathering the data about once per second. I'm using pre-positioned labels on the form to display the information by the following method.
Inside a Timer loop with intervals at 1000
Query the Device
Assign the value to each label (about 30 labels)
My labels flicker real bad and sometimes just blank out
with a white background like I'm not getting them displayed properly.
Is there a better way to handle this, or even a better way to display the data prepositioned on the form?
I can update a memo with the information to verify all the data is correct, and also to make sure the query isn't taking to long, so I believe it's the technique I'm attemping to use.
