  1. Re: Help with best practice for loading data

    If it is a bit slow, you might consider WHEN you load the data, as well. You said that you do it on form load, which may be the earliest opportunity to load the data. If that's the case, then so be...

    VS 2019 Re: VS Complaint

    The dlls are loaded dynamically because they are plugins. The set of plugins can change at any time, and, of course, are added after program installation, so dynamic loading is the only option.
