Re: gdk window clear area problem???

Dear Paul, Thanks for the quick reply.
The reason I chose to draw in a function other than the on_expose_event is, there are other static things (lines, shapes and text labels) which do not overlap (or need to be updated along) with the number being displayed, for then I will have to redraw the entire widget! Since my target board is a low speed device that will bring serious performance issues (there are more than one of these widgets). To get around the problem I am pre-defining a rectangular area (in the on_size_allocate notification) where my value needs to be displayed, and when time comes I will simply erase that area and paint the new value or if blinking is what I want, just erase. OH I forgot to mention, I dont have a window manager in my target system!!! So does that affect the Gdk.Window in anyway? I hope not.

the timer should call queue_draw(); draw only in the expose event
