    Hi,
       We are looking for a flexable controls for asp.net, and we found the Telerik RadControls!
    It's so amazing and we all love it!
       The only one thing that we worry abount is the size( >16MB)!!
       For example,If we just use a ComboBox control of Telerik RadControls in a page, we need to load the Telerik.Web.UI.dll to the memory first?
       And if that's yes, int that case thousands of users visit the page in the same time, our server can take it?
       In a word , is the Telerik RadControls work well in the distributed application?
      I'm looking forward to your reply.
    Thanks!

    Hello Alloovee,

    If 1000 users visit your application, this does not mean that the Telerik.Web.UI dll will be loaded 1000 times in the web server's memory, so you should not worry about this. Generally, the size of web application assemblies does not matter, because they are not downloaded by anybody.

    Hi Titti,

    As Dimo stated, the actual project size on the server doesn't really matter. The end-user will only need to load the code for the parts of the Telerik.Web.UI.dll that you are using. So if you're only using the RadGrid, only the parts of Telerik.Web.UI.dll that are required for the RadGrid will be sent from the server to the client. Rest assured that the whole assembly won't be transferred to the client.

    If you're worried about the actual working size of the project on the server or your development machine (if you're doing embedded programming for example) - there are few choices for reducing the size of the Telerik.Web.UI.dll assembly. In that case you'll have to purchase a developer license to get the Telerik source code. Then you can rebuild the Telerik.Web.UI.dll assembly to only include the controls you need.

    Hope this helps!

    Is there any procedure to follow to reduce the size of the Telerik.Web.UI.dll file? I have access to the source code for Telerik.

    I have a problem with size of my application because right now I customized my application for each customer i have and the size of my app is 8 MB but with the Telerik it goes up to 22 MB. I do not want to start paying for extra space just for a few controls i am using.

    Can someone please assist?

    Regards,

    Alberto

    Hi Alberto,

    Indeed we are planning to reduce the size of the DLL file by splitting it to multiple smaller files. However, I can not comment on when this change is going to happen.

    Is there a procedure I can follow to compile only those controls I need? I can do it myself.

    Hi Alberto,

    Yes, it's possible to compile a custom build of the controls.

    First, you need to have a license for downloading the source of the control.

    After loading the solution, navigate to the skin folder in the Web.UI project and exclude all the skins you do not need. You could exclude the Web.UI.Skins project as well.

    Then you can exclude all controls you are sure you are not going to need and build the project for release.

    Have in mind hat some controls require other. For instance, the grid control requires the combobox control and so on.

    Thanks for the great information Ivan!

    Alberto - I highly recommend you develop your project using the complete Telerik.Web.UI.dll that was released by Telerik. That way you can be sure that your project works as expected with the RadControls. When your projects is complete, and before you deploy it to you server, you can work on rebuilding the Telerik.Web.UI.dll. That way if there are any issues you will know it's probably caused by something you forgot to include in the custom dll.

    Hope that's useful!
