    Flickering with AddChild

    tgoodmannz_bss Level 1
      Hi,

      I've written a little Stock Ticker control. Essentially I continually add moving instances of a display item to a stage.

      I set a Timer every time I add a control to the stage, to determine when to place the next display item. The Display items are taken off a Queue, which can be updated in the background real time.

      My only problem is that there is flickering everytime I add a control. I'm trying to get around this by setting the stage creationpolicy='all', but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

      The flickering is even worse when I add a listener to the end of the move effect to remove the control.

      Can anybody give me a tip on preventing flickering - Or is there a better way that I could achieve a Stock Ticker item effect??

      Thanks,
      Tim
