Creating 100 SecureActionButtons -> Lag


I want to use a bunch (100+) of SecureActionButtons in the result list of my addon (https://github.com/endymonium/keystrokelauncher).

BUT that takes some time (~0.5s for 100) and they do not seem to be cached. Even through I understood that Ace3 has a frame pool build in and is already doing some kind of caching.

Here is the Ace3 widget: https://github.com/endymonium/keystr...tionButton.lua
Here is where I use that: https://github.com/endymonium/keystr.../Core.lua#L817

Any ideas how to solve this? Is there any other frame object which allows me to execute spells when I click on it?

Lua Code:
  1. AceGUI:Release(widget)
Use this to return them to the object pool.

My personal solution to generating/setting up a crap ton of frames is to use a coroutine that yields after a couple of frames, which gives the appearance of the data loading in chunks. It was the only way I could get it to not stall the game because of the large quantity of frames used for this particular use case.
