We have found two major issues in the minifier:

1. When you minify Telerik.Windows.Controls ThemableAttribute is not included in the resultant library so we cannot use the minified DLL In our project.

2. You can't minify Telerik.Windows.Data at all.  No choices are given in the tool and nothing exists in the library once minified.

There seems to be way too much coupling happening for this to be usable as we dig deeper.  Including a RadGridView seems to require PanelBar and TileView as well.

Also, minifying the themes does not work as well and this is a huge problem as the theme files are the largest of the DLLs.

I now think that the theme has references to all of the different controls and as such is pulling them all back in after we have stripped them out.  This is completely useless then if you are using a theme as it requires you to use all of the native DLLs.

Hi Mike Cousins,

Can you send us the MinifyInfo.txt file content. This way we will be able to check what you have selected and what was the result?
The "Telerik.Windows.Data" doesn't have any controls in it - that's why you can't choose anything - but if you upload for example RadGridView and the Data assembly, the second will be minified according to your selection from the Grid assembly.

Can you give us more information about the problem with the themes, so we will be able to investigate it and fix it if needed?

Can you please check this video screen cast - I am showing minifying RadGridView with Navigation, Data and Vista theme.
As you may see on the video - selecting the RadGridView doesn't require PanelBar or TileView - The Navigation assembly is empty. Also the Vista theme is reduced from 2.6MB to less than 400KB. The Data assembly was reduced less, but this is because the Grid is using it almost entirely.
Can you please give the minifier a new try, or give us more information about the problems you have?
Thank you for your valuable feedback.

Whoops.  I didn't realize that the file dialog was multiple select.  I was trying to minify each assembly individually!  It seems to be working fine now that I have that sorted.
