How to use double buffering in MIDP E-mail
User Rating: / 7
PoorBest 

When a graphic is complex or is used repeatedly, you can reduce the time it takes to display it by first rendering it to an off-screen buffer and then copying the buffer to the screen. This technique, called double buffering, is often used for animations.

The example below shows how to use an offscreen buffer in MIDP:

import javax.microedition.lcdui.*;
import javax.microedition.midlet.*;

public class OffscreenMIDlet extends MIDlet {
  public void startApp() {
    Displayable d = new OffscreenCanvas();
    d.addCommand(new Command("Exit", Command.EXIT, 0));
    d.setCommandListener(new CommandListener() {
      public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable s) {
        notifyDestroyed();
      }
    });
    Display.getDisplay(this).setCurrent(d);
  }
  public void pauseApp() {}

  public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional) {}
}
class OffscreenCanvas
    extends Canvas {
  private Image mImage;
  public void paint(Graphics g) {
    if (mImage == null)
      initialize();
    g.drawImage(mImage, 00, Graphics.TOP | Graphics.LEFT);
  }
  private void initialize() {
    int w = getWidth();
    int h = getHeight();
    mImage = Image.createImage(w, h);
    Graphics g = mImage.getGraphics();
    g.drawRect(00, w - 1, h - 1);
    g.drawLine(00, w - 1, h - 1);
    g.drawLine(w - 100, h - 1);
  }
}
