    Reusing components in a view without recalculating values?

    EricJ32 Level 1

      Hey,

       

      Is this possible?

       

      I have a view which displays several small graphs along the top of the screen, like icons. Clicking on one of these graphs will display that graph in the main section of the screen. The small graph will remain visible in the list of icons.

      So, this means I will have the same chart displayed twice on the same screen. The data for some of the charts comes from quite complicated calculations, which happens within the chart component itself, so I would like to find a way of calculating this only once, rather than once for each time the chart is displayed.

      Is there a way of duplicating the same instance of a component, so that the calculations will be done only once, but reflected on each displayed instance of the chart?

       

      I hope this is clear enough!
