Feb 13, 2012 at 6:29 AM

I have sharepoint form where i have 12 cascaded dropdowns, problem here is form is taking too much time to load. almost 1-2 min. can anybody tell me how to improve performance.

Can we make cascaded ajax call in background while form is loaded currently it waits till ajax call is complete.

12 is a *really* high number. I've tested with 7-8, but not as many as 12. To make the cascading work, we have to make a series of Web Services calls.

If you aren't running a recent version of SPServices, I highly recommend that you try the current beta of 1.7.1 (which I will be releasing later today as the current version). SPCascadeDropdowns if quite a bit faster in this new version.
