Smooth sliding of form..

Postby Codius » March 29th, 2007, 10:55 pm

I'm trying to make a part of my form slide out when I press a button..

Code: Select all
for i := 0 to 200 do
begin
  frMain.Width := frMain.Width + 2;
end;


The problem is that this really doesn't look good, I've tried to create a couple of threads which would all do that.. but it doesn't work either. Anyone got an idea how to fix this?

Well it's certainly an improvement, but still objects such as labels which are aligned to something will flicken like crazy

Instead of placing controls on the form, place them on a panel and set panel's DoubleBuffered property to True. Also, after each iteration call TPanel.Update method.

thanks alot, the problem was that I had everything in panels already, but I didn't set the panels to doublebuffered.
