Fastreport 6.7.1 - memory leak on pictures


Our ERP has built-in as reporttool Fastreport 6.7.1.

We build our own reports.

We have a report with big pictures in them, these pictures are loaded from hard disk.

As soon as we load the picture you can see memory increasing rapidly, but it does not seem to get released again.

The code we use:

sub Picture3OnBeforePrint(Sender)


    maxWidth = "700"

    maxHeight = "960"




    cPicture3 = TfrxPictureView.Create(nil)

     cPicture3.Picture.LoadFromFile(MyLink1)                        --> memory increases here a lot  


    if   cPicture3.Picture.Width > maxWidth then


        Sender.Width = maxWidth

        Sender.Height=(cPicture3.Picture.Height)/(cPicture3.Picture.Width) * maxWidth

    end if

    if   (cPicture3.Picture.Height > maxHeight) and (cPicture3.Picture.Height > cPicture3.Picture.Width) then


        Sender.Height = maxHeight

        Sender.Width=(cPicture3.Picture.Width)/(cPicture3.Picture.Height) * maxHeight

    end if

    if   (cPicture3.Picture.Width <= maxWidth) and (cPicture3.Picture.Height <= maxHeight) then

        Sender.Width = cPicture3.Picture.Width

        Sender.Height = cPicture3.Picture.Height

    end if

end sub

If I put a showmessage before and after de LoadFromFile then we can see where the increase of memory is coming from.

But why does it not get released ?

Is there anything I can put in the code to get the memory released ?

Is there any documentation on the TfrxPictureView object ?

Thank you

     Use cPicture3 = TfrxPictureView.Create(nil) one time only, not for each Picture3OnBeforePrint

  • Thx I will try it
