SfRotate Out of Memory Exception in SampleBrowser when scrolling through images around 20 times

Asked On August 2, 2016 12:36 PM UTC


I am looking at integrating the SfRotator into my app however when working with the sample, if I scroll through images around 20 times, then I receive an out of memory exception. This occurs more or less frequently depending on the size and number of the images used. 20 times is using the 5 Movie PNGs as provided in the sample.

I subclassed the Image class, and then put a break point in the constructor of the class and found that the new objects are created for each scroll, therefore it doesn't look like there is any caching being employed for the SfRotator.

Is there a work around for this or will this require a service release?

Kind regards,

Paul Diston

Hi Emil Alipiev,

Thanks for your update.

The reported issue Rotator control with memory leak is not due to the control implementation and by default all the Xamarin controls are facing the same issue. We have created a thread in Xamarin Support forum regarding this. We have found that there is no Memory leak with our Native controls and it is should be fixed from Xamarin side. We haven’t received any update from the Xamarin support forum. We request you to follow up the below Xamarin forum link for further updates.
