ShellBrowser .NET Components

Question / Problem

Clicking check boxes in a ShellFileList the first time is very slow. Is there any explanation 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.
This will suppress fetching the overall filesize, etc.
