Calendar Client-side Performance


To test the performance improvements, we measured how long it took to draw the events on the calendar before and after the enhancements. Drawing of events is the process we focused on when making these improvements.

Use the section below to describe in detail the product feature. Additional paragraphs can describe what you do with the feature, what it cannot do (within reason), in what situations you would use it, and why it is important. A diagram can show relationships and connections better than text, so you may want to include pictorial conceptual info as well. Examples may illustrate a concept also. Notes or tips about a feature can be useful, such as a tip for a user who is accustomed to another, similar product, or an older version of a feature.

As you can see from the results above there is an improvement in timings across the board. The improvements are especially visible when there are a large number of events.

In addition to improved timings, when testing the large calendar above (992 events) with IE 7 and IE 8 the user would see an error/warning prompting them to stop running the JavaScript. After the improvements this error did not occur in our testing.
