Hello,

I think I found a memory leak.

The source code for my program - XAML:

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
   <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
      <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
      <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
   </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
   <Grid.RowDefinitions>
      <RowDefinition Height="*" />
      <RowDefinition Height="*" />
      <RowDefinition Height="*" />
   </Grid.RowDefinitions>
 
   <telerikChart:RadChart Grid.Row="0" Grid.RowSpan="3" Grid.Column="0" x:Name="radChart">
   <telerikChart:RadChart.DefaultView>
      <telerikCharting:ChartDefaultView>
          <telerikCharting:ChartDefaultView.ChartArea>
              <telerikCharting:ChartArea LegendName="chartLegend">
                  <telerikCharting:ChartArea.DataSeries>
                       <!-- Doughnut Chart -->
                       <telerikCharting:DataSeries>
                            <telerikCharting:DataSeries.Definition>
                                 <telerikCharting:DoughnutSeriesDefinition ItemLabelFormat="p">
                                 </telerikCharting:DoughnutSeriesDefinition>
                             </telerikCharting:DataSeries.Definition>
                             <telerikCharting:DataPoint YValue="0.215208267" LegendLabel="Toyota"/>
                             <telerikCharting:DataPoint YValue="0.192960612" LegendLabel="General Motors"/>
                             <telerikCharting:DataPoint YValue="0.151830229" LegendLabel="Volkswagen"/>
                             <telerikCharting:DataPoint YValue="0.125964366" LegendLabel="Ford"/>
                             </telerikCharting:DataSeries>
                         </telerikCharting:ChartArea.DataSeries>
                     </telerikCharting:ChartArea>
                 </telerikCharting:ChartDefaultView.ChartArea>
             </telerikCharting:ChartDefaultView>
         </telerikChart:RadChart.DefaultView>
     </telerikChart:RadChart>
 
     <telerik:RadRichTextBox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Margin="10" x:Name="rRichTextBox1" IsReadOnly="True" />
     <telerik:RadRichTextBox Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Margin="10" x:Name="rRichTextBox2" IsReadOnly="True" />
     <telerik:RadRichTextBox Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="1" Margin="10" x:Name="rRichTextBox3" IsReadOnly="True" />
</Grid>

And the code behind:
public MainPage()
{
    InitializeComponent();
 
    radChart.DefaultView.ChartArea.ItemClick += ChartArea_ItemClick;
}
 
void ChartArea_ItemClick(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting.ChartItemClickEventArgs e)
{
    HtmlFormatProvider html = new HtmlFormatProvider();
 
    rRichTextBox1.Document = html.Import(AddText(e.DataPoint.LegendLabel, e.DataPoint.YValue.ToString()));
    rRichTextBox2.Document = html.Import(AddText(e.DataPoint.LegendLabel, e.DataPoint.YValue.ToString()));
    rRichTextBox3.Document = html.Import(AddText(e.DataPoint.LegendLabel, e.DataPoint.YValue.ToString()));
}
 
private string AddText(string item, string value)
{
    StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
    builder.Append("<table>");
    builder.Append("<tr>");
    builder.Append("<td>");
    builder.Append("<b>Item clicked:</b>");
    builder.Append("</td>");
    builder.Append("<td>");
    builder.Append("<b>Value:</b>");
    builder.Append("</td>");
    builder.Append("</tr>");
    builder.Append("<tr>");
    builder.Append("<td>");
    builder.Append(item);
    builder.Append("</td>");
    builder.Append("<td>");
    builder.Append(value);
    builder.Append("</td>");
    builder.Append("</tr>");
    builder.Append("</table>");
    builder.Append("<p>And some extra text: RadChart for Silverlight is the exact tool to transform various business scenarios into interactive, rich, animated charts that enable the end users to analyze complex data. Telerik Silverlight Chart is a 100% lookless control providing full support for Expression Blend.  All 2D series, charts and axis elements can be dropped independently in Blend and styled individually.

    return builder.ToString();
}

Run this program and click chart control few times (memory usage will increase).

In this simple program memory usage stopped increasing after a while, but in my real application (where data is loaded from a database) – it never stops.

Hello again.

Now I have service pack and the problem is still there. 
Similar problem is when I change RichTextBox to Chart and in ChartArea_ItemClick event I modify ItemsSource:
radChart.ItemsSource = new int[] { 12, 56, 23, 89, 12, 56, 34, 78, 32, 56 };

Hello Andrew,

We verified that the memory leak in RadRichTextBox has been fixed in Q3.SP1. Our only concern is the SpellChecker, which creates a Dictionary that holds references to some strings. We will investigate the issues further, but since you have managed to reproduce the issue with a chart in place of the rich text boxes, I assume the problem does not lie there. Setting the IsSpellCheckingEnabled property to false may be a temporary workaround, especially if you are using the rich text boxes in ReadOnly mode.

As for the chart -- indeed, there is a small increase in memory usage in the scenario you have described. Our developers have already fixed some issues with memory usage in RadChart and they will continue to investigate and search for additional reasons for this behavior.

I am running into memory leaks when using the Dictionary object as well.  Do you have any idea when a fix for this issue will be released?  The memory loss is dramatic and crashes my application before very long.

I am experiencing enormous memory leaks in the RadChart control while dynamically updating the data series. Is anyone else experiencing these problems and how are you mitigating the issues. So far I've gotten a commitment that they are "working on it and will address it in an upcoming release", not really the answer I can give my customers.

Hi,

Matthew: For the time being, please hide the pointmarks, tooltips and labels.

jdgoulden: As mentioned in our reply to your support ticket, please use the same workaround for the moment.

We will get back to you as soon we have any news.
