GDI resource leakage

Hi there,

my company is in process of evaluation of ChartFX for our accounting

application.

The major problem I've faced with is huge GDI resource leakage.

To reproduce my problem open the document zipped and attached, activate

chart then move mouse over bars and watch tooltips. Look at "GDI objects"

column in Windows 2000 Task Manager. Each tooltip eats approximately 4

objects. This is real problem because many of our customers still use Win9x.

The same problem occurs in my application.

Thank you,

Oleg Zaimkin,

Alekta company.

Exactly I run. My application just crashed with appropriate Windows error

message.

There's no point where resources are reclaimed. This way I also can crash

WinWord with rather simple script for Rational Robot.

Thank you, I'll wait for the results.

There's another small aesthecal issue - when I move my mouse while tooltip

is displayed ChartFX updates tooltiptext on every cursor movement even if

tooltip text didn't changed.

Anyway I think we'll succeed in our evalution process bc except this problem

CFX suits all our needs.
