    How to switch off screen updates

    4everJang Level 3

      Hey there, fellow (extend)scripters,

       

      I have created a bunch of scripts that tackle the entire book, with many chapters, and performing lots of search-and-replace stuff. While testing, I want to see what is going on, so I have all documents open and I can see the fast scrolling etc. But to speed up the script after testing is done, I insert two lines to switch displaying off and on again. It seems that this is not enough, for FrameMaker keeps frantically switching from one document to the next for a short while, then makes the screen go blank with a discomforting "Not responding" message in the title bar.

       

      Has anyone succesfully figured out how this whole screen displaying stuff really works in ExtendScript ?

       

      Thanks
