I work in public safety and building fast applications is critical. We have to rebuild a VB6 application in .NET, and we want to use Telerik to do so. However, while trying the RadDock control, I found that it is not really fast, and not efficient at all. I have to load a couple of tool windows, containing labels textboxes, comboboxes and sometimes gridviews,
Maybe I'm not using the proper controls, but I want you guys to have a look at it, and explain to me why it is so slow, and how could I improve the performances.
The control I'm loading in the ToolWindow is a RadForm. Here is the call opening the ToolWindow :
sender, EventArgs e)
RadForm1 form =
radDock1.DockControl(form, Telerik.WinControls.UI.Docking.DockPosition.Left, Telerik.WinControls.UI.Docking.DockType.ToolWindow);
It takes about 3-4 seconds to load.
My biggest concern is that the app is already very slow, and there is not even a single data fetched and display in the form...
Thanks a lot for your help!
