That's interesting. Are you saying that calling a function is significantly more taxing than it would be to execute the function's code "inline"? When I code I try to use functions wherever I can to avoid writing the same code more than once. Does this make my code less efficient as more functions are called?

Another thing I was wondering: Is it more efficient to have one frame listening to several events and decide what to do depending on the event within the one OnEvent function. Or to have several frames each listening to only one event? Or does this make no difference?
