Thanks. That works fine for me on Windows 98. The key thing is that your
method does not force a redraw each time, hence no flicker.
There's still the odd interaction with the minimize function, so I need some
extra code to save and restore the latest actual screen position. (View 1.2.1
must be cheating a little to implement Win98 minimize. It gives the panel an
offset of 3000x3000. If that's hardwired, expect some complaints one day from
HiRes multi-monitor users <g>).
