[REBOL] Help: progress bar to slow
From: reboler::programmer::net at: 20-Nov-2002 11:27
I have a progress bar that keeps track of the progress of an encryption/decryption process.
My problem is that updating it is extremely slow.
A decryption that takes about 4 seconds without the progress bar takes 10 seconds with
the progress bar.
I update the bar with the following function:
update-progress: func [
if current-index // 50 = 0 [
progress-face/data: current-index / max-index
The "if current-index ..." part was included to try and speed it up, but even calling
"show" 50-times less frequently doesn't help much.
The progress bar itself is as follows:
display-encrypt-mode: progress "En/Decrypt Mode" 150x20 center bold 172.158.140 font-color
black font [size: 12 shadow: none] with [saved-area: true]
Anyone have any ideas on why this is so slow?
