    Hi Team,

    Is it possible to just integrate one control from telerik toolkit in a wp7 app. I'm looking forward to buy the license, but do not want to integrate full assemblies when all I need is just one control. 

    Thanks.

    Hi Tk,

    Thanks for contacting us and for your question.

    Our controls are build upon a framework which is distributed among a couple of assemblies. We have structured the dependencies between our assemblies so that the most popular controls depend on one or two assemblies. For instance, our RadDataBoundListBox control depends on 1 assemby:

    Telerik.Windows.Core

    So, depending on which controls you would like to use, the amount of assemblies referenced my vary.

    Could you please share some further information on your scenario so that we can better assist you in your decision?

    Thanks for your time.

    Thanks for replying back. Taking the example you've mentiond above rad listbox control or message box control, I've to refrence two assemblies which is around 0.5mb of code, in actual it could be less than 0.1mb. This hurts startup performance of application. Though, I'm ready to buy full license for all controls.

    Hello Tk,

    Thanks for writing back.

    In general, we have a tool (Telerik Assembly Minifier) that can strip down the codebase throughout the assembly tree in a way that only the needed code is contained within the referenced assemblies and thus the memory usage (and startup time in this respect) is reduced. We plan to enable this tool for RadControls for Windows Phone 7 too which will allow you to literally use only one control in your app without having to load all the unneeded code at once. We will try to do this for Q3 2011 (scheduled for mid November).

    We will be happy to have you onboard!

    Let me know if you have further questions or need assistance.
