How to hide the windows content, while showing the window?
Date: 02.08.05 14:05 (Tue, 2 Aug 2005 09:05:44 -0400)
From: Alfred Van Hoek
When a window has a init button, and the button implements an array of
controls that should appear on the window, the paint events after each
creation of a control is being fired with all of the glitches of
drawing. If there were a simple alternative to

window.hide and window.show, all would be ok.

I hate to see the window disappear and appear again. Is there a window
based trick, or does one need to resort to setting the visibility of
each control false, and then when the button implementation has
finished, set them to true?

And what do you want?

Ever tried to set window.left to -30000 and show it?
(should than be not visible on most users screens)
