I assume the clock is a unique situation, and you wouldn't need to force redraw on most interactive widgets?

Anytime you use a "NO_BOX" or "FRAME" type (boxes with no background), the window:redraw() doesn't flush the previous tracing (I had had the same problem with the bezier animation).

With widgets other than the clock, a redraw is needed only when the widget has been changed. This can be detected via:

widget:when(1); -- 1 : something changed

or better, triggered by any code that does some drawing.

-- Typed from memory, not guaranteed to work as described. Second thought, when is related to on screen events like mouseclick which cause the state of the object to change (checkbox checked, etc.)... best is to trigger a window refresh in the code that causes the screen content to change --
