Recently, I came across a situation where an entity was taking too much of a time(browser asked me to either wait or kill) while loading/searching results in the Webtools application. The entity had close to 5M records, and I checked the server responded timely but the rendering of the screen was taking time.
When I explored the issue I came across a macro which renders the pagination on the screen, and it had a code block which was causing the screen rendering delay.
This code seems logical enough to me, and what I gather from this is that the list will render a select box with 250,000 options.
I would like to propose a change in this UI/UX from select box to an input text box so a user can navigate to any page, similar to a navigation input box in a PDF document reader application.
Please let me know your thoughts on this and share some more ideas to how we can improve/resolve this issue. Looking forward to your replies!
