When I double-click a group name to expand its list, there is a ~500-800msec delay. I remember this not being the case; nor is it the case on my testing setup. Any ideas what this could be caused by? I haven't changed any settings and I already checked whether this could be caused by smooth scrolling, but that setting is disabled.

It's slightly annoying because I'm used to opening/closing groups and selecting contacts and this seemingly short delay makes things a bit annoying.

Vulpix, I confirm the issue even on 32 bit version. Double click on group causes this delay. On the other hand enabling expand icon [ + ] for groups and clicking is not affected and is fast as before.

Robyer,

Yep, the + expands the group without delay. Sadly my theme doesn't use the + and it's not comfortable to click on such a small icon anyway, but it's good to see you were able to reproduce this.

Vulpix,
same thing here. I'll try to investigate this case, it looks very strange

Hello Ghazan,

Any news on this issue? It's still there and it's still pretty annoying.

Thanks!

I don't know since when, but the issue is gone for me, I only just now realized when I was expanding some group to look for a specific contact. Close this topic as resolved please!

Vulpix, for me it is NOT resolved. Opening group via clicking [ + ]/[ - ] is fast (same as pressing LEFT/RIGHT arrow), but double click or pressing enter hangs Miranda for few seconds.

(latest x86 nightly version with clist_modern, Win 10)

For me it is resolved (latest x64 nightly with clist_modern, win10 x64)

I tried it on x86 nightly as well and it's fast. I was about to say maybe it was resolved when I upgraded to w10 - but I see you are using w10 as well :p so probably not.

Can you make a sample miranda for me to test this on my machine?

It is probably related to the profile (or its size). I have usually ~80 MB profile file. When I deleted whole history of contacts, it was slighly faster, then when I deleted many accounts (and thus many contacts), it became much faster. And when clean profile and only few contacts it's fast too.

I expect it iterates over all contacts for some reason (like it does when you are deleting or moving a group - which is completely insane - bad design). I wonder why it is better for you now...

My profile is (unencrypted) 192MB and it's growing every day. Expanding the big group is still just as fast though x3 So I'm not sure how related it is to the profile size... I noticed the same bug on a test profile with almost no contacts in it and only ~4MB in size, back on windows 7.

Now I found that it is related to function "Use better search method in contact list" (or how it's call'd) in Options / Contact list / Extra (last tab).

It whole works really really slow lately when compared to the day when I implemented it. Which means there must have been some internal changes how clist_modern works/refreshes clist contacts.

This needs further debugging and fixing, but I don't have time for this... Hopefully someone else will.
