I made the changes to web.config and BrowserFile.browser to enable comression and ViewState compression.

How do I know that the changes actually "worked". Can I do a View->Source and see any changes? How do I know if it is compressing the ViewState (pretty large on some of my pages) and the AJAX calls?

Thanks!

Hi Jay,

The information about how to compare the performance/loading time of your pages with and without RadCompression engaged is available in the online resources linked below:

Thanks for the reply. I guess I was just looking for a simple way to tell if I configured my web.config and browsers file correctly. I just want to know if the compression has been enabled very simply. I guess I could hook up a packet sniffer or something, but I was hoping there was an easy way, perhaps a log file or the ability to see something using View->Source on the page, to see if anything is actually being done. Thoughts?

Those articles talk about the size of the Viewstate before and after compression ... Maybe this is a dumb question but how can I check the before/after size on my pages when I enable ViewState compression?

There are many tools which can help you with this. FireBug, Fiddler to name a few.

Thanks. Fiddler is a great app!

Using this tool did show that AJAX requests and ViewStates are being compressed. I guess I was just expecting Telerik to have some mechanism to a least validate that the web.config changes were made correctly. I felt uneasy about making these changes and just "hoping" that they took effect.

Thanks,
Jay
