    I'm using Telerik Q1 2012 Sp1 for the scheduler and related controls. I've set up custom skins, and the app is deployed in several locations, including some in remote locations. We need this app to be functional when the remote locations lose access to internet or any other resources and rely only on their local network. Found out this week that even though we have a custom skin, the control is still adding references to a cloudfront server for stylesheets and javascript files.

    This is unacceptable for performance and security. These remote sites are using expensive satellite time, and we can't afford bandwidth for this type of use.

    Can anyone tell me if this has been fixed in later versions? If not, how do I go about getting it fixed, or is there a way to turn off the automatic adding of these references in the rendered browser code.
    File references are for scheduler.css, calendar.css, core.js, jQuery.js, jQueryInclude.js, Ajax.js, jQueryPlugins.js, DateTime.js, PopupScripts.js, TouchScrollExtender.js, RadSchedulerScripts.js, Model.js, RadCalendarScript.js, and RadCalendarCommonScript.js.

    I found every one of these files in the installation on my machine. If I manually add them to the project, will the rendering engine use those copies instead?

    No where have I seen a warning that this product will not work if there is no internet connection. If this is indeed the case, please let us know asap so we can find a replacement.

    Hello Brenda,

    The specified files are downloaded from the CloudFront only if you have CDN enabled on your RadScriptManager. Please review the following help article for details on the subject:

    Bozhidar,
    thanks for the help, flipping off the setting took care of the references. Security folks won't be breaking down my door or stripping the app off the servers, and I don't have to rewrite it. I'd turned on the cdn as part of a troubleshooting setting when we couldn't get the skins to work right, and that was one of the recommended changes. Happy to say the custom skin is working fine without it on, so obviously not needed.
    I'll make sure we include that in our web.config by default for all projects.
    Brenda
