I'm trying to use a comment with a 'set' message to display progress of an operation that can take a long time, such as loading new VST objects, changing mixer values and so forth.
What I tried to do was
1) Send text to a comment object that we're 'loading'
2) DeferLow (I figured this would allow main thread to finish up and repaint the comment but it doesn't seem to help)
3) Perform all the loading operations, which can take 5-10 seconds
4) Send text to comment that we're 'ready'
I need (I think) a way to force the equivalent of a 'repaint' on the object so that the new text is visible immediately.
Anyone know how to do this (or some other way to accomplish this task?)
