Hello,

What is the performance difference between Server-side and Web Services dynamic population? My belief is that Server-side is working  through the TreeView's internal AJAX panel, so if there are other processing-intensive operations on the page those will be still be executed even though that section of the page is not updated, just like they would be with any other update panel. Is this correct? In which case, loading on demand using a web service would be faster, correct?

Can the web service for the control be the new "Page method" variety instead of a traditional web service? So that the the method would exist on the same page (or control) as the TreeView control? If so, in the <WebServiceSettings Path="x" Method="y" /> would x just be parent name of the page or control hosting the TreeView?

Thank you!

I've just found that the first part of my question regarding performance was answered in these blogs:

I'd still like to know if page methods are supported.

Hello terrysmith,

At the time being page methods are not supported. We may consider implementing that feature based on customer feedback.
