How do you make a usable selection list when each item in the list varies wildly in size and takes a long time to load?
We have a list where the user can select a piece of code to display on a web page. The code can be anything, it is user supplied, so some pieces are small, others big. As the page loads, the different pieces display, causing each other to jump around, making clicking any particular one a crap-shoot until all items are loaded; defeating the purpose of loading them incrementally in the first place.
Is there a way to make such a list usable, id est make it possible to click an item reliably before all the items have loaded?
