    FM12 Layout Calculations

    BruceRobertson

      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.
