Cleanup roTextureManager

Hi,
i am creating some bitmap using roTextureManager. in different button click i am calling texturemanager for creating bitmap and show it on roScreen. but it is drawing bitmap two time (giving ready state=3) ,after third term it is giving state=4 which is fail why?
if m.mgr3 <> invalid


m.mgr3.Cleanup()

end if

m.mgr3 = CreateObject("roTextureManager")
port1 = CreateObject("roMessagePort")
m.mgr3.SetMessagePort(port1)

m.mgr3.UnloadBitmap(m.myarray[0])


whenever each time i am clearing manager.

Re: Cleanup roTextureManager

Texture manager is responsible for textures is loads and unloads
Why are you recreating the texture manager and then asking it to unload a bitmap it has no knowledge of. A newly created manager is empty. Also even if you did not recreate it you empty it if it is valid so either way it's incorrect
(Unless a great deal of your code is missing )you never request a texture from the newly created manager but request it to unload whatever is in myArray. You Generally create a texture manager only one time. Load and unload from the same manager.

Re: Cleanup roTextureManager

All you need is one texturemanager created at the start of the program. Request and unload bitmaps as you need them
Look at this example

Re: Cleanup roTextureManager

Re: Cleanup roTextureManager

You can call cleanup as you know this completely empties the manager and releases all bitmaps. However if you still have other variables that are referencing the bitmaps then you have to invalidate them as well. Just like any other variable, memory is not released until all references are invalid
