Are Dynamic Properties still performance issue in 7.5?



There's a lot of old talk about avoiding dynamic properties with CMS 5 and 6 due to performance issues. Does CMS 7.5 face the same problems with performance, or has the implementation improved?

There has been fixes around performance for dynamic properties (I cant exactly remember when that was done). So from that point I would not say you should avoid them. However the editor experience for dynamic properties are not that smooth since they are edited in a legacy dialog.

What is your purpose for having dynamic properties?

If it is for the "inheritance" support it is quite easy to implement a getter that looks if a property has a value on a specific instance and if not traverse upwards until it find a value.

If it is for storing "common settings" you could create a specific "Setting Page" (many also uses StartPage to hold settings) and read setting values from that page.

Thank you for the anwser, Johan.

Settings Page is a great pattern for storing common settings. The use case was for inheritance, and you are right, it would be easy to implement it with properties.
