Tested with a carbon build on MacOS 9: - Set user_pref("nglayout.debug.paint_flashing", true); - Recompile the View Manager without double-buffering - Launch the app and open Test8 - Click on a combobox ===> The dropdown list is displayed and then the entire page is redrawn. It happens everytime you click the combobox.
Summary: Comboboxes cause complete page redraw when clicked → [CBX]Comboboxes cause complete page redraw when clicked

roc, you think this is still happening? God I wish we had working paint flashing. :(
Showing the dropdown causes the entire content window to repaint, although curiously hiding it does not. > God I wish we had working paint flashing. :( http://tlrobinson.net/blog/2008/10/14/improved-browser-paint-events-bookmarklet Of course we really need that in something like Firebug. On Mac, the "Quartz Debug" app works just fine as well.
