    I have a RadPanelBar inside a RadPane/Splitter and it expands/collaps very slow and the navigateUrl opens slow. This is only in IE7, other browsers work fast (IE8, FF3.6, Safari, Chrome) When I click the PanelBarItem, the CPU will rice to 100% for a short period, until it finally expands/collaps or opens the navigateUrl.

    If the RadPanelBar is outside of the RadPane/Splitter it still expands/collaps slow, but slightly faster than inside the RadPane/Splitter. The demos I see at the Telerik website also run slow on IE7 (tested this on 3 different computers)

    The RadPanelBar is initialised like this:

    <telerik:RadPanelBar runat="server" ID="LeftMenu" Width="200" ExpandMode="SingleExpandedItem"
        AllowCollapseAllItems="true" CollapseAnimation-Type="None" CollapseAnimation-Duration="0"   
        ExpandAnimation-Duration="0" ExpandAnimation-Type="None" PersistStateInCookie="false"
         EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet="true" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" EnableViewState="true" CollapseDelay="0"

    The PanelBarItems are added dynamicly, but for some (I use multiple RadPanelBars on a single page) they are in the aspx. There is no difference in behaviour.

    Does anyone know this issue?

    With kind regards,

    Kees de Wit

    Hello Kees,

    Usually the performance of a certain page depends on the amount of HTML markup and scripts. We haven't noticed a significant lack of performance when using our controls in IE7.

    My suggestion is to check this article here, which gives a couple of tips how to improve the performance of our controls.

    All the best,
