#853 closed Bug (Wont Fix)

Embedded IE object has a memory leak when refreshing .php pages

Reported by: jackweed@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


If continual refreshes are used (IE: hit home button several times), you will run out of system memory (use task manager to view memory for this autoit3 process)
I've noticed that some .php pages cause a 1k memory increase on each page refresh.
Facebook homepage refresh is ok...
I use gangsterwar's php refresh and it increases by 1k each refresh. At first I thought it was my original script, however, I used the UDF demo script and put my offending page in there and I still get the memory leak.
================ cut script here ===================
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

_IEErrorHandlerRegister ()

$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded ()
GUICreate("Embedded Web control Test", 640, 580, _

(@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, _

$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 600, 360)
$GUI_Button_Home = GUICtrlCreateButton("Home", 230, 420, 100, 30)

GUISetState() ;Show GUI

_IENavigate ($oIE, "")

; Waiting for user to close the window
While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


Case $msg = $GUI_Button_Home

_IENavigate ($oIE, "")




======================= end of script =================

And you expect us to do what? Using an embedded control means you are using a control written by somebody else. In this case, Microsoft since they wrote Internet Explorer. We can't exactly fix Internet Explorer.
