    When profiling load time on my UI for ASP.NET MVC web app, the slowest is kendo.all.min.js and is causing significant delay in start-up time for my web app.

    However, most of the Telerik demos and docs seem to reference kendo.all.min.js rather than the individual scripts for the individual controls.

    When I attempt to use only and kendo.grid.min.js, I get various errors including the following: window.kendo is undefined, D is undefined, etc, etc, etc.....

    So what additional scripts are required for use with

    What additional scripts are required for use with kendo.grid.min.js?

    Telerik should provide meaningful documentation and demos for use with individual controls and individual scripts that do NOT require use of kendo.all.min.js!!!!

    That file kendo.all.min.js has grown way too large and slow on download and startup of a web app if placed at the top of a web page.  However every time I have attempted to place it at bottom of web page, it does not seem to work properly.

    So what about some better demos and docs that provide alternatives to use of kendo.all.min.js and that pay attention to speed and load time at startup???

    Telerik could also consider improving speed and response time of its own support web site as demonstration example???  I often find myself waiting and waiting just to login to the site and/or access my products page looking for updates on my products.  Why so slow?

    Hello Carl,

    The same topic is discussed in the support ticket send to us through the ticketing system. 

    For anyone else, interested on the same question: You can find a detailed answer here: Shortly, the easiest way to get only the scripts you need is to use the  Kendo UI Custom Download app.
