Document JavasScript/CSS include sizes for all libraries needed for controls
Performance and decreasing the footprint of JavaScript/CSS size of pages is very important for major websites. You all clearly know that as it was one of your goals with Lightweight rendering.

We would like documentation that shows the approximate file sizes for the Javascript and CSS files per control. We would also like to know the base libraries:

AnimationFramework.js - KB?
PopupScripts.js - KB?
TouchScrollExtender.js - KB?
OData.js (why does this load if we aren't using OData?)

We would like more control over the loading of these and knowing what functionality dictates what scripts.

This would really help us evaluate whether to use a control or look for a lighter jQuery alternative as we are very concerned with file sizes and the loading time of our web pages.

Hi Curtis,

I cannot help, but agree with you, however, it would be a very hard to keep the information in the documentation up-to-date with each release for so many JS files.

It is quite faster to just open the zipped installation and see the file size in Windows Explorer on in the archive program as shown in the following screenshot:
