Pause a calculation if it's not displayed

Hi I want to make my application much lighter as it’s full of workflows :grin:

I have a input where a result of a complex calculation is displayed (external API are used in that calculation )
It’s hidden by default and when a user clicks a button then only it’s shown.
But I see in the debugger that the result value is already present in the background although it’s hidden !
How to prevent the calculation then when the result input is hidden. ??

It might help to use a “display data” step in your workflow rather than having the visibility triggered on/off for this element based on user actions – invisible elements do contain the data they’re supposed to contain.
