First, im not sure if this is a generic question or not. I'm using DevArts component "tVitualTable" a table that exist only in memory. If i add 10 000 rows - it takes less than a second, but if i add 100 000 records, it takes about one minute. Im quite sure this has to do with memory allocation, but can i affect this?

The memory allocation is already done by the component itself and nothing is required from you to help it out.
How do you generate those records, it could be overhead.
Try to duplicate those 10 000 records on memory to make sure it's not memory allocation.

I'm sure the problem is in your loop statement, try to trace each line you have while loading the table

Make sure you call DisableControls and EnableControls.
Dont use FieldByName if you are loading many records, use field index or get pointers to the fields first

procedure TForm1.LoadRecords;
var
  F1: TField;
begin
  F1 := VirtualTable.FieldByName('Field1');
 
  VirtualTable.DisableConrols;
  for I := 0 to LoadCount do
  begin
      VirtualTable.Append;
      FI.AsString := '';
      //or
      VirtualTable.Fields[0].AsString := '';
      VirtualTable.Post;
  end;
  VirtualTable.EnableControls;
end;

Secondly,you dont have to load all the records at once, You can load 10,000 records at a time each time the user scrolls to the last record until you have loaded all records

Perhaps you don't have enough RAM in your computer. If running applications require to much memory Windows is solving this problem by heavy using of virtual memory (intensively using swap file). In such conditions performance of the whole system drastically decreasing.
