Using Chilkat RSA ActiveX with Delphi 2007. Pardon me, I know VCL pretty well. But when it comes to ActiveX controls not as versed.
I suspect my code has a memory leak. At least FastMM is pointing to it. I have signing function which creates a TPrivateKey:
pkey := TprivateKey.Create(nil).ControlInterface;
But I am not freeing it (pkey.free gives compiler error).
Is this a memory leak? If so how do I get around it?
See the online Chilkat reference documentation for each Delphi ActiveX class: http://www.chilkatsoft.com/refdoc/delphiPrivateKeyRef.html
You would call the Free method.
However, in your code snippet above, pkey is a COM interface, meaning it is an IPrivateKey and not a TPrivateKey. The "T" class is the OLE Control Proxy class. "Free" is a method of the "T" class.
