[fxruby-users] Vista issues

Hi again,
I have just run shutter.rb (from the example folder, thanks! :)) under XP, and no scrolling effet at all on my computer. When I click on the shutter, change are immediate, no effect or whatever. Have you made tests on other XP computers?

So, referring to shutter.rb
Supposing you have the 'Lookout shortcuts' shutter item selected (you can see 'Lookout today', 'Inbox', 'Calendar', 'Contacts' etc) 
When you click on the shutter item below it, does it smoothly scroll up to nest underneath the 'Lookout shortcuts' item, or does it just spring up there in one frame?
When running this under XP I got the first effect (smooth scrolling), when running it under Vista I got the second effect (jumpy frames).
Do I understand it correctly that you get the jumpy frames effect in both XP and Vista, or just in XP?
Cheers for looking into this.

P.S. under windows the shutter programme can be found here - no need to deactivate ithe icons :)

I'm not using the FXShutter widget myself, so I'm not sure how it's
supposed to work, but I have just run the FXShutter example here:


... And I don't see the smooth animation effect you are talking about,
although I use XP as well. (I have disactivated the icons load, it's not
supposed to change anything, right?)

Maybe your XP machine is so old that your funny smooth effect is in fact
a huge slowdow in screen redraw? :) Just kidding...
