RE: Drawing shapes

Anyone know why drawing functions apparently need to be contained within another function?
I've tried some of the drawing commands at the top level of a window block and get either an error or nothing, but the same commands contained within a function will draw fine to that same window.

It seems strange.

Another strange thing is the fact that drawn objects disappear when the window needs to be redrawn (temporarily place a different window on top or switch to a different desktop, for example). I guess that means you can't use the draw functions to directly create permanent, static graphics?
