I am exploring the idea of adding animation to a button when the mouse goes over it, or when it is clicked on.

The approach I have is to use Display.timeExec() to call redraw on the targeted button, then use a custom redraw code in a PaintListener to apply the animation.

However, the constant redraw() call appears to be expensive - Just calling redraw() repeatedly without any repaint logic will use up 10-20% of my system (3GHz core2 duo).

Is there any reasonable way to implement animation without incurring an big performance hit?

Instead of drawing on the control draw on an image and update that image on the control...

try this snippet ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/

u can strip out all the unnecessary code and add what u require to make the code simpler....

why, mr. Anderson, why, why do you persist?
