I am using a TableLayoutPanel for attendance marking purposes. I have added controls (a Panel and a Label) inside of this TableLayoutPanel and created events for them. In some conditions I have cleared all of the controls and proceeded to bind the same controls in different position of TableLayoutPanel. While re-binding the controls, the TableLayoutPanel flickers and is far too slow in initializing.
Suspend the layout until you've added all your controls on.
TableLayoutPanel panel = new TabelLayoutPanel(); panel.SuspendLayout(); // add controls panel.ResumeLayout();
Also look at using Double Buffering. You'll have to create a sub-class of the TableLayoutPanel. See an example here.
