how does double buffering work with windows forms for avoiding flickering

Recommended Posts

Double buffering uses 2 frame buffers, a visible one and a hidden one. When a new frame is rendered it first gets rendered to the hidden frame. Once that is finished, it copies the rendered frame to the visible buffer. Doing that causes a smoother animation then if you have a single buffer where you render the frame.
