what is the cost of navigate between pages? (my navigate lags) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a page A, which has a gridview which contain a lot of data with images ( > 50 items, each item shows a image and title).

    page B is just a webview, every time navigates to it, it loads a different webpage.

    click on any item in page A will navigate to page B. page A's NavigationCacheMode is enabled.

    Now I found navigate from A to B, or from B to A by pressing the back button lags about 3s on a release build deployed on surface.

    Is there any detail about navigating between pages I have missed or I should not use navigation in this case? (I found using a popup is much faster)

  • Helin,

    With only a few exceptions it is best to not use a webview for Windows Store Apps.  It would seem that not using a web control would be advised here.

    Best Wishes - Eric
