Description lleland 2005-05-26 13:25:06 UTC
We need a direct way to obtain the IndexContainer index of a named or referenced

API programmers use the name of a control to initially identify it, and the
reference to that control from that point on. However, some API services call
for the index of the control for use with the form IndexContainer service. To
find this index, you must loop through the IndexContainer elements in a highly
inefficient sequential search until you find one that matches. This renders
useless the more efficient hashed name search that got you the component to
begin with.
