Preview of art objects in real time.

Apr 23, 2013 7:52 AM

Hi together,


I'm programming a tool handling with width profile and width markers. I would like to see a preview while I'm editing the width marker values (in real time).

I'm editing the width of strokes during dragging the mouse in small steps. Each mouse drag event means a small adaption of the widths. The problem is, that I do not see the change during I drag the mouse. I see the change after I release the mouse. Is it possible to update the artwork during dragging the mouse? So that I see the art object changing during I drag the mouse.


Thank you very much

    Try AIDocumentSuite::RedrawDocument(), it might do the trick.

    This will sound stupid, but we've found that sometimes we have to call RedrawDocument() twice in a row to get it to properly update. Give that a try and see if it fixes it
