[fxruby-users] Forcing a re-paint

I have an FXText window which I would like to force to be repainted 
immediately, not wait for the lazy re-paint.

I have a call to repaint() for the FXText window and for the FXApp. 

The documentation for FXApp.repaint says "Paint all windows marked for 
repainting.  On return all the applications windows have been painted".  I 
take that to mean (or hope that it means) that this a synchronous call, 
and your program should wait for the repaint to complete.  However that 
clearly is not the case - the window gets repainted some considerable time 

There is no documentation of a repaint method for FXText, nor for its 
parent FXScrollArea.  FXScrollArea's parent is Object, so I am not at all 
sure from which class FXText gets a repaint method.

Does anyone know do I force a (synchronous) repaint?
