I have an aspx page with two html tables on it and various other asp.net and ajax toolkit controls.
My first problem with this page is the load up, as it takes 60 seconds of staring into white space before it loads. I can fine tune my stored proc queries (add indexes, whatever) and I can remove some controls I could do without, but it's not making it much quicker. I've looked at recommendations to load the controls AFTER loading the html, but that seems dicey and I'm no pro-coder.
It seems to me there is so much over-head with ASP.NET that outweighs the benefit of using asp.net..
The second problem is that one of the tables needs to display 3000 records. And I need to be able to filter, sort, and page quickly.
So could you guys give me some advice on the way forward here? I'm totally stuck. :(
