    I'm building an app that will display images with content in a list.  I'd prefer to load the images as the items come into view to minimize network calls.  I was looking into using that LowProfileImageLoader control but thought there might already be some functionality built in to help with this.  Any suggestions?

    Hi Spencer,

    We do not ship a specific feature that targets this particular scenario. In general, it is worth noting that the Image element loads its source asynchronously and combining this with the UI virtualization mechanism of RadDataBoundListBox/RadJumpList you will have a very optimized setup for displaying images in a list. This is the way we go in our solutions (examples and applications).

    You can also use the LowProfileImageLoader if you so desire.
