[REBOL] Re: event/offset relative to screen-face ?
From: arolls:idatam:au at: 26-Nov-2001 17:05
I want to get the mouse position directly, because...
I am clicking in a window and dragging
it to move it (with my own code, not using
the os-supplied title bar).
However the events come too fast for the
refresh (perhaps the hardware face movement
trick will improve that).
Anyway, the event/offset is measured relative
to the window, but I am moving the window,
and the window hasn't finished updating since
the last event, so some event/offsets are incorrect.
This results in a window that reacts kind of
wildly, like riding a bucking bronco.
I was thinking of using a lock-out mechanism
while waiting for the window to finish updating,
as I used in a realtime resize program,
but I haven't figured out a way yet.
Anyone got any clues?
That's not a bad bit of program there, though. :)
