    IE Memory Leak Best Practices with AJAX in Mind

    Am I getting obsessed with memory leaks?  Give me a non-leaking browser and I'll cut it out .Yesterday I was hunting for a hard-to-find memory leak with r.a.d.treeview.  Our component cleans up its DOM element references and DOM event handlers when it is being destroyed.  Control destruction and resource disposal occurs on two occasions:  when the page unloads and when the control is updated by an AJAX call (r.a.d.callback, Atlas, etc -- the mechanism is framework-agnostic).  Now the treeview, being a good citizen, follows the leak prevention pattern of keeping references to DOM elements to a minimum.  Most of the...

    The invisible memory leaks in MS Internet Explorer

    Oh boy, not another memory leak post!  We already got a couple here and there.JavaScript development is so frustrating at times that every little victory counts.  The seemingly memory-managed, easy-to-write script language sometimes is harder than C++, and believe me, I've had my fair share of C++, Win32  and COM development.  As if it's not enough that you have to deal with each and every browser's way of implementing the "standard", but now you have to manage and free your own memory.Memory leaks have not been a big problem most of the time.  Well, a leaked <div> or <td> here or...

    Adding controls to Visual Studio Toolbox

    The Problem As Rumen said, adding controls to Visual Studio toolbox can be a tedious procedure. That's why r.a.d.controls are automatically added in the toolbox during installation. This makes it easier for the developer to start using them. However there is a catch - no control is added in Visual Studio 2005... Our toolbox adding code runs without an error but ... nothing happens. Several months ago I found the following forum thread which basically said that the code used to add toolbox items in Visual Studio 2003 will simply not work in Visual Studio 2005. And it is 100% right! We decided to abandon this...
