    Although I like the idea of the minifier it currently does not help me much as I am using dynamically loaded assemblies in my app.

    On my inital/startup page my app uses only one control from the navigation and controls telerik assemblies.
    Subsequent pages that I dynamically load use a host of other tereik controls from these assemblies.
    The problem is that I must load the entire and .naviagtion assemblies on startup if I wish to use them in my dymanic pages (even zipped up these assemblies are close to 500k, which results in a pretty poor inital load time).

    The way around this would be to place the separate telerik controls in separate telerik assemblies (also negating the need for the minifier altogether). Is there any plans to do this or could you suggest some other way to efficiently load my assemblies?

    Many thanks,

    Hi CONOR,

     We don't have plans distribute separate assemblies for different controls for now. You can use Assembly Minifier in your case and strip only the Controls that you use. (Unless you're using all controls in Navigation and Controls).

    Kind regards,
