Performance poor opening a form that contains several subforms some with script libraries

Technote (FAQ)


You notice an increase in the time it takes to open a form containing several subforms, when some of these subforms load script libraries. For example, if a from has 7 computed subforms, it might take one second to open. A form with 10 computed subforms might take 15 seconds to open.

The issue depends on both the number of subforms and on the presence of the libraries.
Either removing some of the subforms or the script libraries results in improved performance.


This issue was reported to Lotus Software Quality Engineering in SPR# DPOL6DTGTH and confirmed as fixed in Notes 8.0.2.

It was found that adding the LotusScript "Print" statement to the 'Initialize' event of each of the subforms resulted in a return to normal performance levels.
