Default Clearing Series<T>

I've got a 20Gb Memory Leak situ going down here

I've tracked it down to my use of the Series<T> Generic, to store rich objects which are make up a huge object graph shared between multiple Ninjascript contexts.

That's fine, I just need to get the remove all the contents from the Series<T> instances on termination, and dispose the objects if applicable. Easy.

Not easy lol.

the Count() method gives a value of 1000 even though there's only a few objects in there, I don't know how many objects there are or at which position they are at.

This code doesn't work, because IsValidDataPoint returns true, despite the assignment to null failing as an ArrrayIndexerOutOfBounds exception.

	for (int i = 1; i <= _validPivots.Count; i++)
		if (_validPivots.IsValidDataPointAt(i))
			var disposable = _validPivots.GetValueAt(i) as IDisposable;
			if (disposable != null) disposable.Dispose();
			_validPivots[i - 1] = null;
I've attached a screenshot of the Debug Session. Showing the Public Count Property showing 500, but the internal structures showing 2 items. IsValidDataPoint(i) passed as true. But the assignment failed on indexer[i].

Am I missing something obvious here? Or is it impossible to clear a Series?

Thank you for the post.
I wasnt able to tell from what you have provided, have you tried using Reset() in your dispose logic that you have shown?


Reset would reset the internal marker for IsValidDataPoint, if you are disposing of the object and then set the IsValidDataPoint to not valid it could be ignored from your logic and eventually garbage collected.

I look forward to being of further assistance.

Hey Jesse, thanks for the response. I did see the docs for Reset but didn't think it was related. I will give it a try and get back to you!
