.setText() slow?

Recommended Posts

Using the .setText() method on text already added in to a Stage isn't instant - for example, if I call .setText() before a FOR loop, the FOR loop will execute before the text has actually been set.


Is there a way around this? I've heard Bitmap fonts are good for this, but I can't use a Bitmap font at this stage of the application (The issue is happening on the preloading screen).

This is because setText stores the value and sets the dirty flag, then when the render loop comes around it rerenders itself.

If you need to update the text immediately, you can call .updateText() directly. That will redraw the text object to the new text you had previously set.
