Hi there, a client of mine wants a jQuery based preview of articles with one large image and two smaller ones, circulating. They all include elements from the same <% control %> block. I am wondering how the SS works - does it recognize the same method is being run multiple times and caches it. Or would repeating the control block three times run the method and the DataObject::get in it three times, thereby increasing the page rendering time?

What's a good solution in this case. I'm thinking - a class private array to save the DataObjectSet if it hasn't been run yet?

Appreciate any input on this! :)
