Re: CSS provider memory problem





When you first start your program and setup the CSS to style with, keep the pointer to the provider around so that you can reuse it. That way the program won't leak memory by getting a new provider each time that a CSS change is made in the program.

I tried to put some CSS differences in the following test code that I have run into. Hopefully it is of some help.
