CustomControl Loading time Problem

Hello Experts,

I have an user control which I am adding pro grammatically to Window in a wrap Panel. Each Control shows some info about a product.

It works ok with upto 200 products but above that it is taking too long to render.

Can I load the control in a seperate thread or any other suggestion? Reading from database is quick but it takes long time in rendering.

Regards,
BjBM

Hello !

Do you use .SuspendLayout before adding your controls ?

See code below.

Syldra
Container.SuspendLayout()
For i = 0 to ControlsToBeAdded -1
Container.controls.add(...)
Next
Container.ResumeLayout()
Container.Refresh()

Open in new window

Hello Syldra

Thanks for reply but I am working on WPF 4.0 and this suspend layout method is not available there.

Hello Experts,

I have solved this question, the best solution I was able to find was making my own panel using VirtualizingPanel.

Thanks for your support.
