[fxruby-users] Vista issues

Only on my wife's laptop and under Ubuntu Linux.
There the scolling effect worked like a charm.
At the end of the day it is not the most major issue as the program still functions exactly like it should, but the effect was actually really neat!
Maybe a couple of other people could have a look if the effect works on their computers?

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
