    Counter Scroll Flickering - MMF Redraw

    I have often wondered why redraw is not a standard function inside of MMF. Or if there is a way to trick MMF into redrawing without using the Fast Loop extension?

    I have an example built in MMF-Dev that demonstrates the problem if anyone wants to see exactly what I mean. (The flickering carries over to Java builds and isn't resolved by the Mobile Utility objects redraw function.)

    Bottom line: Is there any way to force MMF2 to redraw the screen without the Fast Loop extension?

    you have more layers ?

    you have ...
    Layer 1= Down Background graphics
    Layer 2= Counter
    Leyer 3= top Background graphics

    your counter must to be top Layer!

    Use the Kernal Object to redraw the window.

    Re: Counter Scroll Flickering - MMF Redraw

    It happens when I place a counter over another object on the same layer or not - that is large. I know I worked around it before by using a smaller graphic, which I think magically corrected the flicker without a redraw?

    Fast Loop redraw instantly corrects the problem but I was looking for a redraw solution that will work in Java apps too. :whistle:

    OK, I posted a reply. If you want to get these object ontop of things, don't put them on a new layer. Just uncheck "Display as background" and BAM! No more issue at all!

    Thank you very much. What threw me is if the background graphics on the same layer are fairly small, the flickering vanishes that way too - without un-checking display as background.

    And if redraw can fix the problem equally well - MMF by default must not be rendering the frame consistently in the attached example.

    Well, it's kind of hard to draw objects over background objects but put layer 1 under layer 2. That's the issue right there.
