Performance is inadequate when ElementFlow control spans across monitors

Dec 8, 2009 at 12:01 AM

I have a double monitor system with a Quardro 580 video card and Windows 7.  The application I wrote that uses ElementFlow (in Coverflow state) becomes very inresponsive when the control spans across two monitors.

This seems to be general problem with WPF apps. As you stretch the render-able surface to multi-monitors, the perf is very sluggish. In case of ElementFlow, there is lot of 3D rendering and that adds to the pressure. It is advisable to either reduce the number of items or reduce the render dimensions of the app. This may not be particularly applicable for your app, but this is the current solution that I know of.
