When is Refresh Window needed?


I have a Windows runtime solution that exhibits the infamous, spastic flickering/flashing of the screen. About a half-dozen scripts generate charts via Web viewer calculations, and a couple of the scripts call others that apply to different tabs on the same layout.


Since the solution is quite small and uses very little processing power, we had included Refresh Window steps near the end of each just to be "safe". Finally realized, though, that removing Refresh Window reduces the flicker dramatically -- probably because of the nested scripts performing that step multiple times.


My question: How to decide when Refresh Window is truly needed? Does not Commit Records accomplish basically the same thing?

Thank you for any help.
