Here’s a question I haven’t found an answer for in either the manual or the forums: what are the best practice guidelines on when to choose between expressions, scripting, or the simpler binding transformations like mapping and formatting? Specifically I’m considering this with regards to performance and memory usage.
I expect that the biggest gain is to ensure that the binding is not being re-evaluated more often than necessary, but ignoring that for a moment, is there a substantial difference between the transform types?
I understand that there are things that can’t be done in the simpler methods and will require expressions or scripting, and there are similarly things that can’t be done in expressions and will require scripting.
But if I’m comfortable with it, is there any drawback to using scripting transforms for everything?
Is it more efficient to chain a bunch of simple transforms together or to use one more complicated expression or scripting transform?
