Unanswered: DataView with hundreds of thumbnail images
I've got a situation where I need the ability to view a grid of thumbnail images, possibly numbering in the hundreds -- basically like the iPhone's built-in Photos application.
I've loaded them all into a single DataView and performance is (expectedly) pretty bad.
What's the best approach to solving this? Perhaps a 'load more' option -- but that only seems to be supported in the List control which won't support the grid-style layout I'm after.
Or is there a way to have the images downloaded on-the-fly as the user swipes down through the list?
I'm using Architect 3 and the latest Touch libraries.

Unfortunately this functionality does not exist out of the box.
Take a look at the following plugin to see if it displays better performance.
You may want to do a search to see if there are any other ux's out there that will help you.
