Status list webpart continues to load…
Recently I was with a client and encountered some very interesting behaviour on one of their SharePoint 2010 sites.
Lets assume you have a list containing data and a status list which visualizes some of the data of the list in form of an graphical KPI, now you place a status list webpart on one of you pages displaying the information from your status list… everything works just fine.
