Hi, 

Is there a breakdown of all the KendoUI packages somewhere and what is needed for each component to work?
I'd like to know (for example) all the packages required when implementing the KendoGrid (eg, grid, toolbar, pdf, etc). So that my web pages only have to download the minimum about of data to function.

Thanks and Kind Regards, 
Grant

Hi Kiril, 

Id like to implement the 'only what I need' method (for lack of a better term). What is the best strategy to go about such a thing?
I'd like to use the kendo.web.min.js file as it contains all the web elements, but at the some time, at approx 2mb, its contains alot of widgets I do not need on every page. Is the best solution to just read the package descriptions and import what needed for each widget or is there a more efficient way to achieve this? 

What about custom downloads? For example, if I create custom packages; one for DropDownList another for AutoComplete, how will the common JavaScript components react? Will its just fail because of duplicate code

I'd appreciate any advise you can give.

Many Thanks,
Grant

Hello,

Note that you can not and should not combine the bundled js file along with the custom built distribution. It is recommended to have only one Kendo UI Javascript file loaded at a time.

Morning, 

I can understand that. How would you recommend I go about importing only the components I need per page. ?

Thanks, 
Grant

Hello,

Maybe you can consider requirejs for your application?
