We are seeing lot of performance issues when using ext.net controls compared to normal HTML. Is there a way or any settings to optimize the performance?

We are seeing lot of performance issues when using ext.net controls compared to normal HTML.

If you can post two examples - one with raw HTML, another with Ext.NET controls - with the same functionality and view, we would be happy to investigate.

Is there a way or any settings to optimize the performance?

There is a few links:

The below sample code which is a plain html with some ext.net controls. This page is taking approx 4 sec to render in IE8 and 2 secs in Chrome which unacceptable with to server side processing.

This code sample looks strange.

Is Ext.NET rendering the following line?

<SCRIPT type=text/javascript src="Dashboard_files/ext.axd"></SCRIPT>

Ext.NET and Ext JS are not supported in IE Compatibility mode, so you should switch that off.

Are you testing in an IE8 simulator? What are your results if testing in a native machine running native IE8?

You could also try setting RenderScripts="CDN" on the <ext:ResourceManager>. That will pull the .js files from the CDN, which could theoretically speed things up a little.

You should also be using the HTML5 doctype.

Why are all the tags in your sample rendered in FULL CAPS?

Are you loading any other .js files into that page? Why is there that unrelated inline JavaScript rendered in the Page?

Please provide us with the simplified code sample you used to generate this sample Page.
