    Does a tab control load all inactive tabs on load of layout

    bimsickle

      When putting a tab control on a layout, does it load all the data on the inactive tabs when a layout loads?

       

      I have a customer layout, with a tab control.

      The tab control has the following tabs

      Details

      Contacts

      Notes

      Sales

      Log

       

      Each tab has either fields from another table, or a portal or a graph to show data.

       

      My understanding is that when you have one field from a related table all fields are pulled down from the related table.

      So if I have a contact details table (Phone, Fax, Email, Web) all that data is pulled across when I for example display the phone number.

      (This I am okay with and have developed around this premise).

       

      If I put a tab control on a layout, with each tab showing different data is all of that pulled down anyway just by being on an inactive tab? Would the layout load faster if I used mock-tabs and had a layout for each "tab" instead of using a tab control?

      I don't want to necessarily load the customer sales if I am only viewing their contact details...
