I’m currently writing a control panel that will display 36 big vertical metes on screen at once. So i need to make my meter routines as CPU efficient as possible. I’m trying to think of a good technique, i was going to draw the meter in a component then re size it but the problem with that is since Y = 0 is at the top of the image where I can only crop the image from the bottom up by adjusting height its not working out. i was also thinking of using a Image brush then do an alpha fill in a rectangle I’ll re-size with the meter data but I’m afraid that will take to much CPU and will be hard to sync with the repaint calls.
does anyone have a suggestion on how to go about making a very efficient vertical meter in juce??
