Dynamic loading of a list
It works like this:
In a list, a small section of list items is preloaded.
When the user scrolls up in the list, and the last preloaded item is reached…
…a ‘loading’ message and an activity indicator appear at the bottom of the screen, saying that items are being loaded. When done, the loading message will be replaced by the next list item.
Lists of content items can get very long. It's not recommended to load the complete list at once. Loading only the top part of the list saves the user a lot of time waiting for the complete list to load.
- Performance is better because not all items are loaded in the list at the same time
- User does not have to click to see more content
- User has no idea how much content is loaded
- User has to wait each time to see a few more items in the list
- If there\'s no visual cue for pagination, users might be lost when browsing the list. (Borrys Hasian)
- If count of list items is very high, and user wants to see some items from last then it will be very time taken. (Rauf)
