A faster way to display buttons, text and progress bars in a scrollable grid?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I'm developing a rest client for my work that can load requests from files and display them in a scrollable view. From there I can control my requests, see their progress etc, it looks like this now:

Problem is - there are 9 elements drawn for each row and once I try to load 50+ rows my app starts lagging when scrolling (bad coding.. I know :) )

Is there any fast forms/grid udfs that support more than a string display? I want to have buttons and a progress bar, something like the modern apps have:


Something like an arrayDisplay but that can also have controls.

P.s. I don't want to fix my old app :D

My GUIListViewEx UDF (link is in my sig) allows you to expand the functionality of ListViews considerably. You can have coloured items, editable items, run user functions on item selection, etc. Take a look and see if it might be of use - I would be happy to help get it integrated into your app if you decide to go that route.

Open spoiler to see my UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns

Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
