When will managed Windows forms get as fast of their counterparts in C/C++ ?
I think if there is only one weak point in dotNet performance, it is its
slow win forms, which make Win developers like me to deny the full power of
..NET. It is not just the load time that teases, we have too much overhead
with heavy treeViews and listViews that sometimes make us giving up the
whole project on .NET and going back to C++.
Thanks for any help.

Hi B3d,

Well, with Avalon winforms might benefit of the 3d-acceleration of your graphics card. I'm not sure how an Avalon TreeView compares to an Win32/MFC one.

As for slow winforms in general, I disagree, most winforms will show no or very little difference. Most winforms don't use heavy treeviews or listviews.

If you have large data sources then the standard .NET TreeView and
ListView components perform very poorly. You should maybe consider a
commercial alternative.

Infralution's VirtualTree provides almost instantaneous loading of
large data sources and can be configured to look like a standard tree,
a list view or combination tree/list view.

You can find a fully functional demo at:
