calling the .activate takes a long time

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 14 years ago by Eli Gazit

Our project uses the actipro docking. the dock site content is a wpf charting element.
the first time a tab is opened with a chart, the activate() method takes long time (about 30 seconds). when the tab is closed and reopened (click on a button on the ribbon), the activate takes significant less time (1-2 seconds if not less).
Can anyone shed some light on this mater ? what exactly happens regarding the content property of the dock site when the activate method is invoked ?

Hi Eli,

At our core, our Docking product is simply a ContentPresenter. So if you are seeing a lot of time taken the first time only that you load something, that generally can mean that it's .NET loading assemblies that are required for whatever component is being loaded. Maybe your chart component takes a long time to load. Our Docking controls will load about instantly under normal circumstances so you should probably focus on what content within them could be causing the delay instead.
