ShellBrowser .NET Components

Question / Problem

Clicking checkboxes in a ShellFileList is very slow.Is there any explaination for this behaviour ?

Answer / Solution

For folders containing many files and subfolders the process of collecting file information (e.g. overall size) can take a while. If you 'd like to suppress the scan you can set the CalculateSelectedFiles property in the SelectionList to False.
Sample code can be found in the JamExplorer example.
