I'd like to ask the team, if it's possible [now] or perhaps consider adding the following feature:
Is it possible to have Telerik DLLs get shrunk when not all methods and classes full used?

For example, I use CoverFlow in only one small project and the XAP gets huge, because I have to reference two large DLLs. Is there a way we can have a VS plugin or stand alone program, that would remove the unused codes in DLLs? This is one complain I get all the times.

Thank you in advance!

Hello ..Ben,

We have some ideas in this regard, but there is nothing yet that we would like to share publicly ;-)
Definitely we will be doing a lot of different things to optimize assembly size - this is a major effort for the q1 release.

Kind regards,

Hopefully you guys will come up with a solution, because as you add more controls and features to the existing system, it gets larger and larger. For example the Navigation is just getting too big, in case someone needs one control. Or perhaps more breakdown to a more reasonable assemblies.

Please keep us posted, so we know this matter is still alive :-)

Hello,
Is there any update on this... We would like to shrink our xap files.

If I only want to use the tabcontrol on the Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation.dll assembly, I should not need to load 1.4mb?

Kind Regards

Found the solution... http://minifier.telerik.com/#/Assembly

Hello Sam Vanhoutte,

Indeed the Telerik Assembly Minifier can help you minimize the size of the assemblies you use. You can find more info about the tool here and you can also have a look at this blog post that lists 5 ways for further reducing the size of your XAP.


All the best,
