Add an option to groupboxes to only fetch the data when the box is expanded

20

Right now, all data is loaded upon opening the page, which can make the page slower. Users may not want to use all group boxes on a page, so pre-loading all the information may not even be necessary.

Proposal: Add a feature to group boxes that allows the contents to be displayed upon expanding the contents.

Prerequisites: 

 

As far as I know, tabs already have a feature similar to this, so adding it to group boxes would be a logical next step.

ANY SUGGESTIONS??

Or configurable per group box:

  • Having a “simple” page, pre-loading may be faster
  • Having a “loaded” page, loading on expand may be faster

Absolutely. Great idea.

The page can even start prefetching every group's data upon pagecompletion, making the groupbox open without having to wait for the dataretrieval.
