Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I'm trying to build a userinterface for a mysql-database. I am trying to add a listview but it is flickering. Before I used strawberryperl and then it worked fine, but since i've been using Activeperl i'm having more problems with the Win32:GUI module. I saw on the internet that the flickering is a well-known problem, but i can't find a solution. Perhaps someone can help me. Ty.

    Are you updating the contents repeatedly in your code? It would help to see that.

    Does it still flicker if you reduce the gui to just a window and a list box with some contents? When does the flickering start as you add more interface and/or links to the database?

      It flickers from start.All I have is a window with a listbox, it's not even connected to the database. It looks silly

        Funny; that doesn't look like code.

        Oh, you answered only the second. -   -

    How odd, usually every flickering problem is because of flags used or omitted (something about clipping children), or wrong parent/child of a window, or a sizer/layout battle (two windows assigned the same screen position by one or more sizers(/layout managers) battling for TOP position)
