Drawing a display panel with textures.

I’ve heard that SetPixels is very slow? I want to be able to draw shapes, words with a font, etc on a textures at a smooth enough time interval. An example of something I’d want to accomplish is a panel with a scolling bar to display the progress of an operation being done on a machine with a percentage value showing how much is done as well as some other things.

You call also animate your texture with a simple script.

It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
