Class ReRenderManager

  extended by java.lang.Thread
      extended by vanetsim.gui.helpers.ReRenderManager
All Implemented Interfaces:

public final class ReRenderManager
extends java.lang.Thread

A small manager to get better user experience through buffering ReRender-calls. By using this, the GUI gets (almost) immediately responsive again upon clicking a button. If rendering the background takes longer than the time between multiple button clicks (made by the user), some ReRender-events are kind of silently dropped.
