Re: Best way to do lots of moving things on screen?

Piru has identified the timezone support introduced with MorphOS 3.11 as the reason for the slowness. So it's a feature but I can fix it by using a new API introduced with MorphOS 3.11 but of course existing software using the API in question will be slower because of timezone support introduced wi...

Re: Continuous Button Press (using MUIA_Timer attribute)

With MUI Royale it would be possible of course but I'm reluctant about adding it to RapaGUI because this is meant to provide a solid cross-platform basis and I don't want to add too many platform-specific APIs...

Re: Serial.device selection under amigaos

Sure, it's possible to extend the Amiga API to allow a device name to be specified. I have no experience with the serial device on Amiga so I was just of the opinion that serial.device is all there is. But since that obviously isn't the case, I can add support for manually specifying the device to u...

Re: pdf.GetText fails to get text with some PDFs

Hmm, what are those last two characters? Are they non-ASCII ones by chance? It could also be that the length calculation is wrong. Have you checked what exactly is missing?

Re: Continuous Button Press (using MUIA_Timer attribute)

I don't think this would be possible for RapaGUI because wxWidgets only supports simple click events for buttons so I don't think this is something that can be implemented in a cross-platform way.

Re: Best way to do lots of moving things on screen?

In the meantime Korni from PPA found that if you delete the TZ (timezone) variable in ENVARC: then everything gets back to normal (that is - fast) speed. Interesting... He has probably just read Piru's comment to the issue in the ticket I opened in the internal MorphOS bugtracker ;) Piru has identi...

Re: Best way to do lots of moving things on screen?

Ok, I've debugged it and this seems to be a major issue in MorphOS to me. If you add this line to the top of the script DisableLineHook the script will fly. So the bottleneck is in event handling and not drawing. After some further debugging I've noticed that a timer.device function is abysmally slo...

Re: Fire (and handle) custom events

What for? Can't you call the event callback directly?
