    Telerik provides a rich set of controls and features, but obviously we're only using a subset of all those controls. I wonder if it is possible to create a Visual Studio project to build a single assembly that contains all controls and themes that we're actually using and leaving out all non-needed controls. And doing so, would this be compliant to Telerik's license agreement?

    Hello Michael,

    I'm not sure what controls you're using in your project, but building a single assembly containing them might not be a trivial task considering the amount of components we provide and the dependencies they have on each other. What is more, I think this would complicate the upgrade process should you decide to switch the version of the libraries that you're using.

    According to our license agreement, before deploying your application you need to ensure the assemblies are protected. This is achieved by rebuilding the controls using the approach described here and practically depends on a modification to the Telerik.Windows.Controls assembly since all controls depend on it. That said, extracting the code and rebuilding it in a separate assembly would not be compliant with the redistribution policy.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
