digitalmars.D.learn - gtk interface responsiveness

reply Johnson Jones <JJ Dynomite.com> writes:
I have an icon that I toggle which clicked. It seems that I can't 
toggle it any faster than about a second.

The handler is being called each click but it seems the gui is 
not updated more than about 1fps in that case? Although, I'm sure 
it update faster than 1fps, just seems the icon/image isn't.

The code I use to set the image is:

Image.setFromStock("gtk-go-up", GtkIconSize.SMALL_TOOLBAR);

or

Image.setFromStock("gtk-go-down", GtkIconSize.SMALL_TOOLBAR);

I also have been experiencing significant slow downs when the gui 
load for the first time. Doesn't always seem to happen but 
basically keyboard output across the os is unresponsive then 
everything occurs at once(when whatever catches up for quits 
interfering with the keyboard). It takes about 20 seconds for 
that to occur then everything works fine afterwards best I can 
tell.


(BTW, thanks mike for all the help ;))

Could you please post the complete minimal code (and compiler options) (or a link to them) required to reproduce the issue?

I'll try to formulate something when I get some time to do so. Just trying to get things to work the way I need them to see if gtk is gonna be the gui library I use.... lots of problems but hopefully it's just growing pains.

It takes about 3 seconds to write the map file(I have it generating cross references, not sure what it actually does but I thought it might help with debugging issues. I have it enabled for both x86 and x64. I thought I disabled it with no differences, but maybe I missed it). It takes another 4 seconds to create the pdb. But it seems that about 6 seconds are done doing thing 7:13:14.7148555 PM link.exe 9860 QueryStandardInformationFile C:\D\Libraries\x64\gtkd.lib SUC ESS AllocationSize: 84,443,136, EndOfFile: 84,439,450, NumberOfLinks: 1, DeletePending: False, Directory: False 7:13:14.7148665 PM link.exe 9860 CreateFileMapping C:\D\Libraries\x64\gtkd.l b SUCCESS SyncType: SyncTypeOther 7:13:15.7801685 PM ServiceHub.IdentityHost.exe 4952 Thread Exit SUCCESS Thread ID: 11224, User Time: 0.0000000, Kernel Time: 0.0000000 7:13:17.2481064 PM ServiceHub.VSDetouredHost.exe 5004 Thread Create SUCCESS Thread ID: 10976 7:13:17.4141043 PM devenv.exe 1040 Thread Create SUCCESS Thread ID: 11200 7:13:17.8990951 PM DParserCOMServer.exe 4492 Thread Create SUCCESS Thread ID: 9176 7:13:18.7481654 PM ServiceHub.VSDetouredHost.exe 5004 Thread Exit SUCCESS Thread ID: 10976, User Time: 0.0000000, Kernel Time: 0.0000000 7:13:18.9163321 PM devenv.exe 1040 Thread Exit SUCCESS Thread ID: 11200, User Time: 0.0000000, Kernel Time: 0.0000000 7:13:19.4011479 PM DParserCOMServer.exe 4492 Thread Exit SUCCESS Thread ID: 9176, User Time: 0.0000000, Kernel Time: 0.0000000 7:13:19.9681080 PM ServiceHub.VSDetouredHost.exe 5004 Thread Create SUCCESS Thread ID: 10416 Not sure what is happening in there but it seems like Visual D or Visual Studio issue rather than dmd ;/ I'll look in to it some more to see what I can find.
