Thanks for your post.
Sorry, we don’t have any hidden parameters. Available methods, properties are listed in language guide, developer guide, etc.
Our engineers performed a quick test against an Applet with 11000+ lines (few forms), it took about 2-3 sec from pressing the Run button and execute the applet. This delay also could be based on the amount of RAM available.
Sub Main(Client, GWEvent) msgbox "Main()" ....... End Sub
If your applet perform some internal activities prior to displaying dialog, perhaps, you can consider to show a status dialog.
Another thought, Formativ can consume COM automation objects. You could create a COM object in VB, C#, etc and register it, then Formativ create instances of the server and call methods on it. For example, you can write memory/CPU intensive tasks in COM object and consume its methods/properties in Applet.
Hope this helps.
