    Hi expert
    i'm trying B4A coming from Appcelerator.
    It is very fast and simply

    I try to use a scrollview populated from a sqllite db cursor with many records
    my scrollview is very slow when loading

    For this reason I'm thinking of asynchronous code or other ways

    can someone help me please

    the above is my code
    Sub AR_Load
    Dim ArBitmap As Bitmap
    Dim MainPanel As Panel
    Dim PanelTop, PanelHeight As Int
    Dim progress As Int
    Dim Cur as Cursor
    Dim Db as SQL
    PanelTop = 0
    MainPanel = SV_Ar.Panel
    MainPanel.Color = Colors.LightGray

    cur = db.ExecQuery("Select cdar, ar_descrizione from ar")
    ' this return about 7000 records and is fastest (250 ms)

    For i = 0 To 500 ' cur.RowCount - 1 '(only fist 500 records for test)
    cur.Position = i
    progress = i / 500 * 100
    Dim ItemPanel As Panel
    Dim ImgAr As ImageView
    Dim LblCdAr, LblArDescrizione As Label
    PanelHeight = 90dip
    ItemPanel.Color = Colors.Black

    LblCdAr.Color = Colors.Black
    LblCdAr.Tag = LblCdAr
    LblCdAr.Text = cur.GetString("cdar")
    LblCdAr.TextSize = 20
    LblArDescrizione.TextSize = 16
    LblArDescrizione.Tag = LblArDescrizione
    LblArDescrizione.Text = cur.GetString("ar_descrizione")
    ImgAr.Bitmap = ArBitmap
    ImgAr.Gravity = Gravity.FILL
    PanelTop = PanelTop + PanelHeight + 1dip
    ProgressBar.progress = progress
    If i Mod 50 = 0 Then ' refresh progressbar every 50 record
    End If
    Msgbox("","End Load scrollview")
    End Sub

    Please use [code]code here...[/code] tags when posting code.

    The first step is to remove the DoEvents call.
    You should avoid loading the image multiple times. Load it once and reuse it.

    Make sure to test it on a real device and test performance in Release mode.

    Hi Erel
    thank's for your answer
    I'm starting with B4a only yesterday.

    that i want is a list of product with some product information and product icon
    i want insert some filter and need to display result in a listview or scrollview

    I imagined that DoEvents would slow the program but I have inserted it to obtain a progressbar refresh and increment because without the above code
    If i Mod 50 = 0 Then ' refresh progressbar every 50 record
    End If
    I did not see any movement of it
    In addition I have used several times
    ArBitmap.Initialize( ...
    because in my code the name of icon is different for all product

    I noticed from forum that you are a real expert, could you give me some help please?

    Based on the code you posted you are loading the same image multiple times. Anyway, did you test it in release mode on a real device?

    Dim ArBitmap As Bitmap = LoadBitmap(...)

    For i = 1 to 500
    'here you can use ArBitmap multiple times
