Rendering Speed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do you get faster rendering by using GraphicsWindow.Draw/Fill rather than Shapes.Add/Remove?

  • Try it and see.

    They are for different things, so if one is faster its not much use if you can't do what you want with it.

    I would think that the draws are faster, but perhaps not.

    The slowness in SmallBasic is not really down to rendering, but the way arrays and other variables are interpreted from Primitive to internal types.

    Generally careful programming (i.e. minimal use of large arrays) can give good performance.
