I've used scalars with a single rectangle as the visual element-- however, just
mousing around it looks like numberbox, vradio, my scalars from the demo,
and a simple filled rectangle can all cause large cpu jumps when displacing or
How does the cpu usage in my demo compare to your patch where you use
In practice, I've actually used arrays of scalars for a little video game, but the
