Strange problem in menus

Hi there,

I''m using the Syncfusion menus in my project, and have run into a problem while doing some memory profiling on the application.

It seems that somehow a bar item has a reference to and event handler which somehow has a reference to an object in my data model. This is stopping the data model from being garbage collected. The bar item in question is in the MdiParent form, but has the text of a bar item in the child forms. I can only assume this is some copy object used to handle menu merging.

Is there anyway to clear up all hidden objects like this so that we can dispose our model?

Hi Terry,

My sincere apologises for the delay in getting back to you. Are you using RegisterMdiChildTypes in your application? If so, please try unregistering in the form_closing event.

Also, please let me know the Essential Studio version you are using?

Thanks for your patience.

Hi Terry,

We were able to see the issue when profiling a sample created using Syncfusion version

The memory leak issue is fixed in the latest source and the fix will be included in the next release to be released shortly.

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

Best Regards,
