What is better screenlock/unlock or paging

Postby Gablea » Jul 14, 2018 17:22

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could explain for me the difernace between Screenlock and unlock and paging.

I was told for older machine (600MHz with 256-512mb ram) that screen paging is the best way to do graphics but then others are telling me to use the screenlock and unlock functions.

So could someone explain what they are and give me a Example of screen paging in FreeBASIC as I can not find any

All the different methods covered in a document, written by fxm.
Can be found in: Forum/Documentation/"How to Solve the Flickering Issue when Refreshing a Window in FB Graphics Mode"
Read it and draw your own conclusions ...
(you'll probably not find many people, agreeing on any one method)
