GDI+ any rules of thumb

2 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

I am doing extensive work on a screen capture using GDI+, I would like someone to explain where and when to dispose of any

$hImage =_GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile("pic.bmp")  or createfrombitmap functions

do some work on it, may be 2 or 3 different clones, atleast 1

_GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage)

or should I dispose after each bit of work then load it again, or do I just add any var name to the end of my script just before

_GDIPlus_Shutdown()

You should create the $hImage, do on it all the work to do and then Dispose when this $hImage is no more needed in the script
So you can place _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) just before _GDIPlus_Shutdown(), or just after the whole work on $hImage, or just before another load if you need to create another $hImage to work on a different image
