I have multiple drop down lists which share a json dataadapter, and it seems that a connection is made to my server for every instance of each drop down list, is this correct? If I have 10 drop down lists sharing a single dataadapter to populate their lists, the script connects to my server 10 times, adding huge amounts of overhead. Is there a way I can prevent this from happening? Thank you.
If you make specific (“custom”) widgets for each one cell then it is possible to have such a case.
It is difficult to guess without an example.
Please, provide us with more details about your case.
One jseditor/jsfiddle example will be better.
Sorry it is hard to provide an example since the software is so integrated, in our system. But You mentioned cells and custom widgets, These are simple drop downs in a form, not in a datatable. Very basic form, with 10 drop down lists, but all sharing the same contents. Loading the page makes 10 calls to the drop down list json source.
