I use Xojo Windows. With about 15 Windows, 200 methods and other stuff, the IDE editor becomes incredibly slow. When typing, it takes about 5 seconds for the characters to appear. Using the backspace is virtually impossible. The autocomplete can’t be used while it takes another 3 seconds to appear, and when it appears, it got the words mixed up, double or garbage.
I simply cannot work with this. When will this be fixed?
I’m pretty confident this is because they use a canvas as the IDE editor and have to do all kinds of tricks to get it to function as a textarea-type interface. I really wish they would focus on a solution that used a text input-type control instead of what they’re doing now.
Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, windows 8? 32 bit or 64 bit? How much RAM? What version of Xojo?
Our main project is 139 windows, 51 modules, 209 classes, 25 interfaces and has over 375000 lines of code.
We do not have the problem I saw in your video. If we did, it would be unworkable.
I’m using a i5-3470 PC with 64 bit Windows 7 and 8GB RAM.
HP Probook 4740s, Intel Core i3, 2.4 Ghz, Windows 7 64 bit, 4 Gb Ram, Xojo ver2013.3. Strange thing is that the slowness not gradually appeared, but just ‘was there’. I’m thinking if this has something to do with 2013.3. I also checked in the running processes if some kind of key logger of hotkey program was active. So I shut down all processes I couldn’t relate to Windows… no change.
Hmm. International windows version?
It has to be something. Troubleshooting without having the machine isn’t easy
Don’t get too frustrated, I’m sure eventually someone will help you figure out what the problem could be. It’s definitely not happening on my machine and if it was happening to a large number of users, we would have heard about it loudly on this forum. It’s just a matter of figuring out what the problem is.
Dutch version of Windows ( I assume) with an English version of Xojo on a HP machine. Other than the fact that it is a desktop machine here and you use a laptop, it’s the same config (but I have 8GB of mem and an i5). Does Xojo also behave like this when you start a new project?
going on a limb here: Your spec says 4 GB RAM, which should be enough. Given that there is a lot of “added value” stuff on your computer, much of which may be running in the background, can you take a look at available memory? if your laptop is short on available memory and resorts to virtual memory on disk, you would definitely have poor performances.
Could you perhaps create a private Feedback case with your project (and all related items)? It would be great if we could reproduce this.
I just tried Windows 7 x64 on a VM with a single CPU and only 1GB RAM assigned and the full suite of MBS plugins installed. I’m not seeing any slowdown using Xojo as I navigate projects or type in the code editor.
