To reduce the time required to repaint a View on scrolling, the Grid Control implements the partial redraw mechanism. This is invoked if the AllowPartialRedrawOnScrolling property is set to true. In this instance, the grid only repaints the new section of the View that appears on screen. The rest of the View’s graphic surface is simply shifted depending on the scroll direction.
