You can also set up a callback on the idle event and do a little
processing every time it's called, though that can be odd because it
tends to e.g. update more often when the mouse is moving over the
window and such. There may be other ways, too, I don't have access to
my docs or the demo here (just poked my head in because I'm waiting
for my work program to stop being frozen ...).
