    Is there a way to boost performance with the rad decorator?? 

    I have a page with various Telerik components and all are inheriting the skin setting from the web.config.  I also have a decorator on the page. The problem is performance. 

    WIthout the decorator my performance repsonse is about what I would expect: about 6-7 seconds to render the page and then open one of the panel bars containing a grid.

     With the decorator it takes about 30 or more seconds.

    What if anything can be done here??

    Hello Robert,

    RadFormDecorator is optimized to perform best, however as the decoration is done entirely on the client, it is normal that the performance is slowed down on pages that contain a large number of form controls set for styling. Unfortunately, at this stage we cannot offer any other way for optimization, but either to exclude FormDecorator or set only certain controls for styling.

    All the best,

    hmm, I've never had the decorator cause much of any a performance hit

    1) Gzip
    2) RadScriptManagers EnableScriptCombine
    3) RadStyleSheetManagers EnableStyleSheetCombine
    4) RadCompression
    5) Maybe restrict the decoration zone and decorated controls to only those which you need to decorate

    ...grabbing at straws
