[REBOL] Re: [view] accelerating view...

From: maximo:meteorstudios at: 15-Jan-2004 17:49

hi paul, that is a worthy assumption but in reality, VID and face really are the same beast. This specific problem is 100% face only driven. But in reality, it does not make any difference, because vid is really only a layout engine. It adds a few higher-level gizmos, but still uses the basic face/feel events and all of the basic face effects, just like if you use them manually. I think focus is specific to VID but its been awhile since I've played with that so I'm not completely sure. most of my rebol/view GUIs use VID and direct face setups about 50% equaly. In the very near future, I will start using liquid-vid more and more and eventually should phase out most basic VID useage, which I'd keep for modal Q&D panels. I also have a system where I extract vid faces and use them directly as my base face. This way I can cleanly re-insert them into vid layouts. if anyone can show speed differences in specific areas, then please share the info, we all want to know for sue ;-) my only beef with VID is that some styles use the redraw feel a litle too liberally, IMHO, and on large layouts, this CAN kill some noticable amounts of interactivity. -MAx --- You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being part of the problem is much more fun.
