Asynchronous LS code in a Notes form

Say you want to fill some cache at the start of a form, e.g. looping through a view in the PostOpen. The user has to wait until the loop is finished. If this code could be executed asynchronously, the user wouldn't have to wait and could start filling in the form. Of course, some logic will be required to be able to find out that the code has ended. Nevertheless, it would improve the user experience.

    Another solution is to launch a background agent when opening a document.

    NotesTimer is a little dangerous?? Buggy as hell you mean...
    In the meantime I found out that some things can be done in an more or less asynchronous way using client JS (Thanks Høgne!), but it's fairly limited.

    This is now possible with NotesTimer. It is then only a little dangerous for the timer handler to interfere with the form.
