Loading data pages asynchronously

Updated on February 7, 2022

Increase process efficiency and save time by enabling users to take actions on a work item, for example submit a form, while other content is still being loaded on a web page.

  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.

  2. Expand the User Interface category, and then click Section.

  3. Open the section that you want to edit.

    Note: Ensure that the section whose display you want to delay by using asynchronous data page loading is an embedded section. For more information, see Creating an embedded section.
  4. In the section header, click the View properties icon.

  5. On the General tab, in the Page context list, select Use data page.

  6. In the Context value field, select the data page that you want to use as a source of values for the section.

    Note: To enable users to process data that has already been loaded while other data continues to load, use read-only data pages from one thread as the source of the secondary content. For more information, see Elements of a data page.
  7. Select the Defer load contents check box.

  8. Click Submit.

  9. On the section form, click Save.
