Slow performance on lagre form


I am having some major slowness whe swtiching from a screen to another. I have a basic setup, my home screen is a simple gallery, on click, I transfert ThisItem over to my editor screen. 


My editor scren has about 50 control input, comboboxs or dropdowns. On top of that I have a few icons, labels for eatch controls and a few buttons. I have a main canvas and a sub canvas where its card will show / hide depending on what step the user is on. 


This takes me about 5-10 seconds to load the screen, a bit more when i start requesting data from SharePoint to pull other data. Reasearching on google I find articles that say to use galleries when possible which i did. I still end up with 50 controls that are hooked to a local collection and still takes a long time. Any idea what i can do at this point to accelerate this a bit?

Hi @Owizardo,


How many records are there for the connected data source? Also, for performance issue, please read through below documentation and check if it could help:

I only transfer one record over to the next screen, I even removed all the repeated gallaeries I had in my edit form and its still sluggish. Even the cover or fade animations stutter. Really seems to me like this is just a probleme handling too many text input and many show/hide conditions.


I read the post you mentioned already but for my situation they simply recomend using galleries where possible and avoir hooking controls to data sources directly. I currently have all my control hooked to a local collection. Thats about it.
