I created a TextArea, and inserted about 250KB of text.
However, when I add the TextArea to a Canvas, it takes a very long
time for the TextArea to finally become visible. It seems like
adding TextArea to the Canvas causes a major delay.
How do I manage a TextArea, which contains a lot of data,
such that there there is no significant delays in displaying the
So the delay is when you add the TextArea instance to the
canvas and not when you set the text value of the TextArea ?
Did you try to add the TextArea instance to the Canvas
children BEFORE setting the text property ?
