    FM12 Layout Calculations


      FM12 has some performance problems that appear to be related to how much calculation is required to display data.


      I created two simple test files that contain a conditional format calc that increments a global variable.

      The global variable is displayed as a merge field on the layouts.


      The difference in behavior between FM11 an FM12 is interesting and startling.


      Try the files: try resizing windows, navigating between records, using layouts where the formatter calc is in line or only in the header.


      In some cases in FM12 a single refresh may cause the variable to increment by 10.


      There is a script in each file to reset the variable.
