    Transitions, Components, and Processing

    ccdoss

      I have several states in my application. In State 1, a user can select one of several calculations on a set of data. This processing takes a few moments depending on the selection, which occurs using a combobox. Once the selection is made, the user is sent to State 2 to actually show the results.

       

      I am having trouble having the processing and state transitions flow smoothly.

       

      When I try processing in the combo_change event listener, the combo box freezes open, the cursor can't move, and the app looks frozen for a moment until the processing is done.

       

      I've tried processing during various stages of when the components in State 2 are created (ie creationcomplete, updatecomplete, etc), but the app shows a blank page because none of the elements from State 2 are showing.

       

      Can someone please provide a suggestion as to where I should place the heavy computation in this procedure?
