Double redrawing

I have noticed that any time that FoxCharts draws itself it seems to paint itself twice. The first time all the colours, including the background, are a little bit darker than they should be, and the second time it's fine. If it's animating, such as sliding a pie chart slice out, each frame is drawn twice. The first darker drawing moves the slice a step, and the second drawing that corrects the colours does not move it. I also noticed that during the animation the darker pass removed the tooltip and the lighter one puts it back.

I'm using it under Terminal Services, which is why the repaint are slow enough for me to clearly see this happening. Does anyone know if the double drawing is intentional, accidental, or a side effect of using it under Terminal Services?

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your message. I~ll be out of town for some short vacations of 5 days. I hope to test this and your other post in Issue tracker when I get back.

TIA
