Folder DragDrop

Anyone else notice the time req'd when moving a folder with anything substantial in it (50 items)?

It takes about 10 -15 seconds and looks like the treeview repaints itself for each node.

I'm wondering if it's just me or is this common?

The bigger the site, the slower the repaint.  I assume much more is happening in the database.  I make the CityDesk window as tall as possible and DragDrop in as few big chunks as I can, then Ctrl-U, Ctrl-D a little as possible.

It's not the most efficient code in the world :(

Not to presume but have you ever tried storing the node objects directly in the treeview under tag (or tagvariant)?  Coupled with LockWindowUpdate and a hidden tree for re-parenting its Rocket fast!

Just a thought

I love the product, by the by!

Why do I get the impression that my sphincter quotient is off the chart!?!

I love it when Joel admits that his product isn't perfect. I wish more people had that kind of attitude.

You seem to be an appologist for a non-existent problem, I agree completely.  But I'm just obtuse enough to not, really, know what you're saying <g>
