    After following settings listed here : http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/radcompression.html , only ScriptResource.axd files are being compressed by RadCompression .
    Please let me know if there is something missing. Thanks. Regards.

    Hello Jp,

    Indeed only the ScriptResource.axd handler will be compressed by RadCompression and other handlers with extension .axd are excluded. This is done by design since we received reports in the past that compressing other .axd handlers conflicts with other controls' behavior.

    The other aspects of RadCompresssion's functionality and object model are explained in the help topic you pointed out.

    Kind regards,

    How can you know if the compression is actually working?  FireFox YSlow is claiming no compression on the ajax files.

    Hello Alfred,

    You can disable the compression, check the time which was consumed to pass the html/javascript/css resources from the client to the server using FireBug and then compare the results with the case when the compression is enabled.

    Also note that using RadCompression is worth when the viewstate of the page is above the 8K limit as explained in the blog post linked in the relevant topic from the documentation.
