    Hello, I have data in the form of what can be considered part of of an esri shape file, I have just the byte arrays for the shapes themselves and not the other parts of the shape file such as the file header. I believe the methods to decode the byte array into a MapShape exist internally within the telerik dll, but is there a good way to access them directly?

    Hello Andrew,

    Unfortunately the current API does not allow to read parts of a shape-file. I would recommend to generate the shape-file standard header. You can use the MemoryStream class to build a stream with the standard shape-file (header and shape) and then you can use public ShapeFileReader.Read(Stream) method to read shapes.
