Lazy loading for multi-page data lists

Enhancing of Acumatica pager navigation by introducing Lazy Loading.

Apart from being able to click the "Next" button, the trigger to load a new page of data would be to just scroll down. This is similar to the way a Facebook news-feed works, where posts are loaded only on a scroll request. This technique should not effect performance as the data is only requested when needed (scroll event). At the same time, this makes the system more user friendly as the user does not have to locate and click on the "Next" button.

    Thanks for your idea and please take my apologies for the late answer.

    As it was mentioned on Developer Keynote, we're adopting the newest technologies, and there is a new selector control which has autosuggest with lazy scrolling. But I'm not sure that we have plans to use this approach in inquiries.

    I see this type of navigation on a few (more than a few) pages in Acumatica now.  Perhaps they are moving this way in general - a bit more with each release.  The VCR / Next Page controls are annoying (to me) in large lists but one comment I heard earlier is they are necessary for the mobile platforms as mobile-data speeds can't handle a scroll down 50% of a 1600 item list.  Or 10,512 item list like you might get in A/R or A/P historical lists.
