Increasing Form Access Speed

Form access speed refers to the time it takes for a VPM Enterprise form to appear after it is selected from a menu or by clicking the form image while another form is on top.

The following subsections point out some ways you can speed up form access.

Activity Tracking

If your application doesnít need Activity Tracking, turn it off on the applicationís Admin Tools form. You can alternatively turn off Activity Tracking on a form-by-form basis through the setting of the formís lNoActivityRecord property. You may not notice a marked increase in form access speed after turning off Activity Tracking, but every little bit you can do to increase form speed adds up.

Control Security

If Control Security is not needed for an application, turning it off on the applicationís Admin Tools form will increase form access speed.

Field Security

If Field Security is not needed, turning if off will increase form access speed. You can turn off Field Security for an entire application or for selected fields.

∑       Turning Off Field Security for an Application

∑       If Field Security is not needed for an application, you can turn it off on the Admin Tools form reached from the Security popup on the applicationís Admin menu.

∑       Turning Off Field Security for Selected Fields

∑       If Field Security is needed for some fields but not for all fields, you can speed up form access by leaving Field Security on for the application but turning it off on your forms for fields that donít use Field Security.

∑       To turn off Field Security for a field, in the Form Designer blank-out the cCSControlID property of the fieldís control.
