Switch between Tabs is slow

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I create 5 tabs with a datagrid/charting.

The switch between 2 tabs is really slow. I know I use large dataset but they is a solution to optimize/cache tab in a docksite to accelerate the switch?

What are the tips to optimized the docksite?

Hi Sylvain,

The docking window tabs work like a normal TabControl where there is a single ContentPresenter and that gets content swapped in for the currently selected tab.  If that contain contains an enormous number of visuals, switching could be slower due to measure/arrange calls.  There might be some things you can do to help a bit.  Could you email our support address with a new simple sample project showing the slowness?  In your email, please let us know exactly what version/build you are using, reference this thread, and be sure to rename the .zip file extension of what you send so it doesn't get spam blocked.  Thanks!
