    How do I make it so the telerik controls don't fill my toolbox in VS 2010?   It takes 2 minutes for all the telerik controls to finish loading (I've reviewed the logs to confirm that it's mostly teleriks controls there)  during which, VS is completely unresponsive.

    I like for the controls to be available for me to hand-craft the XML, but given that each control takes like half a second to be added to the toolbox, it's just not worth the time.   

    Setting the option -> Windows Forms Designer -> General -> AutoToolboxPopulate = False doesn't seem to work when working in the silverlight designer.

    Hi Jason,

    Normally the Visual Studio is slow while loading the toolbox controls only the first time it's started after the controls installation.
    If the Toolbox is loading slowly every time then you can try to fix it by resetting the Toolbox. Follow these steps:
    1. Close all Visual Studio instances.
    2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to "%localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\".
    3. Make sure that the option 'Show hidden files...' is selected in the Windows Explorer options.
    4. Delete all *.tbd files.
    5. Start Visual Studio 2010 and use the Toolbox Configurator wizard to set the required controls version.
    The first time the Toolbox is opened after the reset, it's expected to be slow again because it needs to repopulate the controls but it should not happen after that.

    If you still want to remove the controls from the Visual Studio Toolbox you can either delete the tab they are all in by right clicking and "Delete Tab" or just right click on the item itself and "Delete".

    Please let us know in case you need further assistance.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
