super new to agk. Trying to migrate over from dbpro . I seem to be having some trouble drawing text on top of boxes and lines. the text draws to the screen and the depth is supposed to bring it to the front. there seems to be no specific draw command to call it at a specific time agk treats it as some kind of object. i like to generate gradient buttons and menus at the launch of a program then i make sprites from them, it keeps download size to a minimum and saves lots of phone space plus they are made on the resolution they will be running on.

Adding the call to render forces the lines to be drawn and so the text appears above it.


Also...the drawbox function will do what you want more quickly and simply




I wouldnt bother sleeping in the main loop either....let SetVSync() or SetSyncRate() so that a frame rate is maintained and automatic sleeping occurs
