Default q: Double Buffered

Hello. I just want to know: Is there any negative points for using Doublebuffering b'cause at the moment I use it left and right in my program and I just wondered why it's not set to true by default :-)

Default RE: q: Double Buffered

It uses twice as much memory and takes twice as much see the stuff is first drawn onto a canvas in the memory...that's why it takes more memory...and only then it's drawn to the destination canvas...that's why it takes more time...but if it's run on a kinda fast computer and you don't want too much flickering then you should set it to True...

Hope that helps...
