AmiPDF page refresh fix request

Postby Deniil » Mon Aug 01, 2016 10:39 am

Hi

I have a small bugfix/feature request for AmiPDF. 10 min implementation :-)

When resizing the window it redraws the PDF everytime, as expected. However, some PDFs are extremely slow to redraw (several seconds on X1000) which means that I have already resized the window and released the mouse button long before it has processed all IDCMP_NEWSIZE events. In this case AmiPDF keeps processing all (10-50) queued up IDCMP_NEWSIZE events and redraws the PDF over and over again many times, (taking a long time) even when the window size stays the same. (I have already finished resizing and released the mouse button.)

Request: AmiPDF should discard any IDCMP_NEWSIZE redraw event when the windows size has not changed since the last redraw.
Thank you.
Deniil

The whole AmiPDF needs a new version. Waiting for it, you should give a try to qPDF (works with QT, on OS4Depot), faster than AmiPDF and way more compatible. ;)

I think it's not a mistery that AmiPDF will be part of the next Enhancer Package, so you may add your feature request/bug reports here:

@samo
Imho, requests probably can be starts once core of amipdf will be changed on something modern and fast like that one which use vpdf on morphos (open source Poppler library and XPDF). As if didn't change amipdf core, it will be always slow as it now , and little fixes and visual updates will not help :)

Well beside the core changes having fixes will be always better than nothing even because for now this is the only program we can use for read PDF under AmigaOS .. yes i know that a Qt solution exists but it's not exactly a clean solution considering the general state of the framework (Qt is great but still not 100% integrated yet)

But don't worry, AmiPDF is now in good hands and i'm sure that step by step they will modernize it ... while we are talking they are still developing it ;)

Meanwhile what prevents you to start porting VPDF under OS4 ?

@Denill

I have a good news for you 8-)
