virtualization of control

Hi

I have created a listbox
<ListBox Margin="58,96,100,66"  Name="listBox1" VirtualizingStackPanel.IsVirtualizing="True" />

Open in new window


Now I am binding it from code behind
for (int i = 0; i < 1000000; i++)
{                
 listBox1.Items.Add(i.ToString());
}

Open in new window


Even I have set VirtualizingStackPanel.IsVirtualizing="True" even then why it takes a lot of time to load the list.

Please advice.

Regards
Karan Gupta

3-4 seconds. The main concern is not time, but to see how virtualization helps in improving performance.

Well.. Have you tried to disable Virtualization and see how long time it takes?

So you have a listbox with 1 million options in it.

What are you measuring?
The time to send those megabytes from server to client?
The time it takes the browser render such a listbox?

Because virtualization really makes no difference for those two.

If you want to measure the server-process only you will need to time it takes to generate the code. So compare begin (right before the loop) and end time (right after the loop) on the server.

my assumption is that you are doing manual data binding and not setting the data source and then call the bind method
My assumption is that when you set the data source and do data bind then the virtualization will kick in and will only load desired set of records and not all the records at a time
