Re: Why do *sequence-dialog-item*'s blink when changing them?

>The blink is rather annoying.  Here is some code that exhibits this

The blink is because the dialog-item has to redraw when its table-sequence
is changed.  You could  probably avoid the blink by NOT calling
set-table-sequence, but by destructively altering (table-sequence) and then
calling draw-cell-contents on the altered cells.  For a very large table
this may also be more efficient.  Be VERY careful while destructively
altering the list, of course.

This is off the top of my head and is probably wrong. :-)
