Well I had an idea while preparing my pizza just now to stop the editor flickering. I just stuck a Sleep(1); in there and it now scrolls nicely without a flicker in sight. This is the second Sleep(); I've used in two projects now though. [rolleyes]
Is it actually bad style or is that just in my head? It always feels somewhat hackish.

Anyway. Pizza time.

Why not just set a framerate lock? Sleep(1) is essentially just making it so that it can't update really quickly (minimum waiting time of 1/1000 of a second). Why not just use some timers?

That would have it running at 100% cpu though wouldn't it? This isn't a problem but it looks bad..
