Description of MUSHclient world function: world.Repaint

Name Repaint
Type Method
Summary Forces an immediate redraw for all windows for this world
Prototype void Repaint();

View list of data type meanings


This function forces the output window to be redrawn. This should not normally be called, as the window will be redrawn at the appropriate time through the main "event loop".

Unnecessary calls to Repaint will slow the program down.

However for "animation" situations (like moving an image over a map) there may be times when you actually want the window redrawn, between "frames". In this case, you could call Repaint to force an immediate redraw.

Otherwise, use Redraw instead, which will cause the window to be redrawn at the next appropriate opportunity.

Note: Available in version 4.35 onwards.
