    [RESOLVED] Updating a Static 'Text' Control without flicker ?

    Hi All,

    I have a simple input/output loop that updates a static control on each iteration, I'm seeing a lot of flickering which I don't like, the behaviour I'm looking for is like that of a static text control with the SS_SIMPLE style set, text is rendered without flickering, presumably without erasing the background? however there will be times where I would like to erase the background and completely reset the text... How can this be achieved ?

    Many thanks in advance!

    How often do you refresh this static control? Every second?, Millisecond?

    Every Millisecond or so, I haven't managed to reduce the he flicking by updating less frequently but there still remains flicker... Would this be a owner drawn solution ?

    But it is senseless to it so often!
    Try to update it in response to WM_TIMER every second.

    And how?
    A second was a little to slow for me, worker thread Posts() a user defined message to the GUI every half a second or so... zero flicker!! Many thanks for your time Victor! Merry Christmas and happy new year to you!
