    I'm trying to create a ZIP file from Silverlight with a list of JSON data and compresses well. The problem is to receive it in the server because I have no library Telerik receive the Zip to extract and process the result. The library I am using is IonicZip to receive the result but I get error trying to read the MemoryStream. Is there a library for Telerik decompress the ZIP file

    Code in Silverlight:
    MemoryStream memoryStream = new MemoryStream();
    ZipCompression method = ZipCompression.Default;
    Telerik.Windows.Zip.ZipOutputStream zipOutputStream = new Telerik.Windows.Zip.ZipOutputStream(memoryStream, method);
    StreamWriter writer = new StreamWriter(zipOutputStream);
    ServicesClient context = new ServicesClient();
    context.SetZipFileAsync( Convert.ToBase64String(memoryStream.ToArray()));
    Code in WCF:
    public void SetZipFile(string _parameter)
             if (!string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(_parameter))
                 var info = Convert.FromBase64String(_parameter);
                 MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(info);
                 string dataList = string.Empty;
                 MemoryStream output = new MemoryStream();
                 StreamReader read = new StreamReader(output);
                 using (ZipFile zip = ZipFile.Read(stream))
                     ZipEntry item = zip[0];
                     output.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
                     dataList = read.ReadToEnd();

    Hi Alexander,

    In the RadControls for WPF suite of controls, you can get the Telerik.Windows.Zip.dll which is a plain .Net assembly and you can reference it in your WebApplication. Give this a try and let us know if you need more information.

    All the best,
