Very slow performance when assigning value to a form item


Dear all,

I have an add-on form that contains 30 text edits. I did not creat the from with screen painter but positioned them by marking each item's top and left position in the new sub.

I have named them as 'edBox1', 'edBox2'......, 'edBox30'

At a point I need to assign value to each edit text, I have queried the content from DB into one recordset. However, when I start to assign values to each edit text, the performance became very slow.

my code is as follow

me.form.items.item("edBox1").Specific.String = recordset.field.item(0).value.tostring





me.form.items.item("edBox30").Specific.String = recordset.field.item(29).value.tostring

I found that B1 seem to iterate each item on the form in order to find the item I specified.

so I think I should specificy items earler.

Now for each item I dim an object for it at new sub

Dim oedBox1 As SAPbouiCOM.EditText



Dim oedBox30 As SAPbouiCOM.EditText

and while creating forms, I specificy each item to the matched object

Then I assign values to items by

oedBox1.String = recRetrive.Fields.Item(0).Value.ToString



oedBox30.String = recRetrive.Fields.Item(29).Value.ToString

However, B1 still iterates to find the item and the performance is still slow, does anyone has a better solution to this issue? please kindly advise.

Thank you
