GDI+ Disposal and Shutdown

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am in the process of writing a GDI+ graphic-heavy program using numerous pens and brushes. It is getting fairly difficult to keep up with what is created when the script is in use, so in some circumstances some components may not be disposed of properly.

What are the repercussions of not correctly shutting down GDI+ and its components?

In the past I've notiecd that task manager fills up with rundll.exe's if _GDIShutdown is not called. Is eating up memory the only downside, and will these rundll's dissappear eventually??

Thanks in advance

Andy

You could give my GDIPlusDispose UDF a try and not have to worry about the disposing, it will be done automatically see the link in signature.
