Yes, after thinking about it a bit more there should be an internal Begin/EndUpdate somewhere in the corresponding LCL routine. I first thought that each Begin/EndUpdate pair causes code generation but actually it is the opposite (if nesting is allowed).

Yes, if the *programmer* does multiple things to a GUI component. But here it was only a single assignment which should not require Begin/EndUpdate but this assignment seems to cause multiple things internally which make it flicker .
