    resolved [RESOLVED] Software got slower

    Hello All,

    I am using so many variables stored as arrays, so after loading data into the arrays, the programme was getting slower.

    The data were loaded from external text file using (loadVariables). After loading the data into the arrays, those variables from the text file which initially loaded on (_root) deleted using (delete) keyword.

    Any tips on how to enhance the performance of this software?

    Thanks!

    I am talking programming, and you trying to be Mr. funny, I don't know.

    Those many variables are needed to store data (input data), which are need for the programme.

    There is nothing funny about that. Think about this: you can lift maybe 2 kg with no problem whatsoever, then 50 kg is somewhat heavy, but still doable. And then there is 500 kg, which is impossible for you to lift, so you can't really lift it off the ground. So the advice I give you is do not put too much weight on it. And you are like, "ha ha you're funny, but I still need to lift 500kg, your advice does not apply"

    Hello,

    Sorry, I can't supply the file. Thanks for understanding!

    The loaded input data is like; Property vs. Date (Monthly), the property could be anything. Let's say for example; Temperature vs Date.

    like;
    Date Avg. Temp.(Degree C)
    1/1/1970 25
    1/2/1970 23
    1/3/1970 22.5
    .
    .
    .
    1/1/2017 26

    So from 1/1/1970 up to 1/1/2017 (47 years)
    47 yrs*12 months = 564 Months

    Therefore, there are 564 points as dates(Months) and 564 points as avg. temp.

    The Months are stored in Array, and the avg. temp. points are stored in another Array.

    This huge data make the soft. runs slowly. Any tips how to solve that? All the data are needed for analysis.

    Why you not split into years and load as necessary.

    are you loading up many textfiles, or is all the data stored in 1 text file


    if it is 1 textfile for all the data than bad idea its going to be slow.

    if it is many text files, is your data going to be in a scrollpane?

    if its a scrollpane let me know. we can load and unload a certain range of files as you scroll up and down

    perhap maybe a datagrid would be better than scrollpane,https://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash8/datagrid.htm

    he did say was one file, we all know that bad if big big

    maybe best using xml too , like so,

    can do it many ways with xml, this will be called 1970.xml
    Code:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <year>
        <month avgTemp="10" date="01/01/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="12" date="01/02/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="14" date="01/03/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="16" date="01/04/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="19" date="01/05/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="21" date="01/06/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="21" date="01/07/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="22" date="01/08/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="23" date="01/09/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="19" date="01/10/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="15" date="01/11/1970"></month>
        <month avgTemp="14" date="01/12/1970"></month>
    </year>
    or

    Code:

    can make many variouos way of the xml, simple or complex, many tutorials on how to load and use

    scrollpane is easy too but not work with muli data like datagrid, anyway, nobody know how you doing it, perhap you are making graphs from datas

    I have used one and multi-files; but the results is the same, soft. runs slowly. As all the loaded data are store in one array for property-1 and another array for property-2.

    I will give your suggestion (scroll pane) a try. Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have never used xml files before. I don't know they work. I will see if datagrid can be utilized.

    And you were right about the graphs, the soft. produces graphs out of the loaded data.

    Thanks!
