i am using SharePoint 2010. I built a webpart which is displaying elements from another list on the same page. This works fine and fast but when i put in the conditional formatting the loading process of the site tooks a very long time, around 30-80 seconds. The aim is to view these elements (there are three: red, yellow and green) like a kind of a traffic light.

Code in SharePoint Workspace

Any tips for improving the performance?

  • it is more easy to integrate on your HTML
