If the width is a multiple of 4, you can use the byte array directly as form bits:
| w h bytes form |
w := 100.
h := 60.
bytes := ((1 to: w*h) collect: [:i | 256 atRandom - 1]) asByteArray.
form := ColorForm extent: w at h depth: 8 bits: bytes.
form colors: ((0 to: 255) collect: [:i | Color gray: i / 255]).
This would be the best and fastest way. If the width is not a multiple of 4 then perhaps you can add the necessary padding when creating the byte array. Otherwise, a very fast way is to use BitBlt to copy whole lines from the byte array to the form.
But even creating a byte array with the right padding just using at:put: would be a lot faster than using a Pen.
