    In radControls for asp.net I am able to use an http compression module by setting the UseEmbeddedScripts property of some of the controls to 'false'.  In the Prometheus suite there is no such property (at least I haven't seen one).  Is there a way to get compression to work while using the Prometheus controls?

    Thanks

    If you are running on IIS 6, have you used the built in compression? I am not sure about .axd, but I set it up to compress .js, .css as well as dynamic pages such as ascx, aspx, and even master pages. My payload is typically 30-40 percent of the original file size.
    I will look some more at the .axd next time, but here is a good link below to configure IIS 6.

    Thanks for the suggestions.  My goal was to continue to use our existing http compression module with the new Prometheus controls, which was not working very well.  However, I found that by removing compression for css, gif, and jpg everything started working as it had with the previous controls.  While compressing images doesn't make any sense anyway, I'd still like to figure out how to compress css and maybe even axd (LFA, I'll take a look at your link, thank you). 

    Thanks
