A simple interfance to help track and clean up .NET reference in a way that keeps your block diagram looking clean.
Properly cleaning up .NET references can quickly get out of hand. Typical .NET code creates a lot of references that are only used for a short period of time.
This toolkit help developers keep track of these reference and easily close all of them only once they're no longer need.
Reference Cleanup.lvclass:Reference Cleanup.vi to initialize the reference counter.
Next, when new .NET reference is crated, add it to the counter by calling
Reference Cleanup.lvclass:Add Reference.vim
Finally, when you're done with all of the references, call
References are tracked using the VI that created them. When the
Reference Cleanup object is created, a named queue is created based on the calling VI's name. Next when
Add Reference is called the call chain is searched for an existing cleanup queue, and the reference is added to it.
So typically a VI will initialize the
Reference Cleanup at the start of execution. Perform all of it's .NET related tasks (and just add reference as they're created) then finally close all references at the end of execution.
Any references that implements the .NET
IDisposable interface will be disposed of before closing.
