MI performance deterioration because of IE and HTMLB


Hi All,

We've developed a mobile application (currently running MI2.1) for one of our customers.

The application runs on a laptop and uses HTMLB for presentation.

When used intensively the performance of the application droppes and Javascript errors start popping up.

It seems that the HTMLB and IE combination is the bottleneck. HTMLB generates a lot of javascript (some deferred) with a lot of eventhandlers.

Garbagecollection is a problem in this case.

The IE problem is explained in:

It apprears to me that we are not the first ones to stumble across this problem.

Anyone has a solution?

The 'normal' workaround would be to store all the object names when a page is created and nullify the objects on page unload. Because of the dynamic tag generation of HTMLB this is not possible.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
