Lock updates is intended to avoid recalculation of group properties when child object properties are changed. The general idea is: set the lockUpdates of group X to true repeat — lots of stuff modifying group content here end repeat set the lockUpdates of group X to false It is not saved with the stack as it’s intended to be transient. So if that’s not clear from the docs we probably have a docs bug. I usually avoid boundingRect because you need to remember to update it if you change the group rect. clipsToRect is basically the same as: on resizeControl set the boundingRect of me to the rect of me end resizeControl Cheers Monte _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
