A common requirement is to improve the time for switching between the pages in RadPageView.


RadPageView loads its pages on demand. Hence, when you click a page tab for the first time, its content will be loaded at this point of request. Then, every next switching to this page is expected to be faster and smoother. Thus, RadPageView will be loaded faster when starting the application, but it will need more time when selecting a page for the first time.

You can force all the pages to be loaded when initializing the form by making each page visible and thus the page selection will be faster for the end-user when clicking a tab. A sample approach is demonstrated here:

    foreach (RadPageViewPage page in this.radPageView1.Pages)
        page.Visible = true;

    For Each page As RadPageViewPage In Me.radPageView1.Pages
        page.Visible = True
