Memory Leak

Hello We work with Synchfusion essential suite version 2.1.0.9 and we’ve faced with a severe memory leak problem throughout our application causing from Synchfusion components. Some results from memory profiler come below: Namespace Name Instance Common.Uil.Controls RToLPanel #437,863 Common.Uil.Controls RToLPanel #437,872 System.Windows.Forms Panel #437,874 Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools TabControlAdv #437,875 System EventHandler #439,026 System EventHandler #446,083 Syncfusion.Windows.Forms Office2003Colors MenuColorsChanged Namespace Name Instance Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus BarControlInternal #437,013 System EventHandler #444,132 Syncfusion.Windows.Forms MenuColors MenuColorsChanged These problems seem to have a common root. In order to change theme and colors for components, Synchfusion has defined some static events (like Office2003Colors) and all components register themselves to these events, so that when a theme is changed all components are informed. The problem is that as the event is static the reference for the registered component is not freed and so the component is never garbage collected. Would you tell us if this bug is fixed in newer versions of Synchfusion? If not, what we can do to solve this memory leak problem in our application? Needless to say this Problem is getting more and more critical for us. Yours truly, Ershad Rahimikia

My company uses Syncfusion essential suite version 2.1.0.21. We have the same problem and I am wondering if there is a fix or suggestion to unhook Syncfusion control event subscriptions to objects like Office2003Colors.

I know you can unhook these by explicitly calling Dispose() on all the Syncfusion controls when you are done with them. In fact, I have written a utility function that I can call on a form or control that has nested child controls. It will search through the hierarch of child controls and dispose of any that are of the "Syncfusion" namespace(using reflection). This will prevent hidden memory leaks due to forms that you thought should have been garbage collected, but were not due to the Syncfusion events. This method is a little slow and also requires the programmer to remember to do this everytime he is done with a form or control.

If you can suggest a better way, it would be greatly appreciated. For instance, is there a way to globally turn off these event subscriptions?
