Inhibit initial layout execution refresh is now possible only in some cases.
1) through a procedure with an action "go to screen" + option "disable initial layout execution" or through an "On open trigger" procedure.
2) Using an ATO pager
3) while developing a layout, using the option "Apply" instead of "OK"
MY WISHES ARE:
USER POINT OF VIEW: the option "disable initial layout execution" should be a screen setup option; e.g. this will allow a user to 1st select the desired analysis range, then run the layout refresh.
Especially in large reports this option may be very appreciated.
DEVELOPER POINT OF VIEW: when a screen is opened in design mode from the screen list the layout execution should be disabled as default. Infact sometimes happens that I have to make a small change in a report; opening it I should wait its execution; in case of large reports it's a waste of time.
