android – How to release a Firemonkey control properly, in this case a child form with a parent? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/02

For my archive as [] TFmxObject.Release is deprecated since Delphi 10.2 Tokyo, and – worse – broken on some platforms: [WayBack] android – How to release a Firemonkey control properly, in this case a child form with a parent? – Stack Overflow

TFmxObject.Release uses TThread.ForceQueue internally, and that’s currently broken under Android (see discussion above).

As a workaround, a working cross-platform version for releasing an object from its event handler would be

procedure TForm.CloseBtnClick(Sender: TObject);
  Parent := nil;

Instead of Synchronize you can also use Queue in above method.

What is important to keep in mind is that you should not keep any other references to the control you are releasing or you may hit the trouble down the road.


[WayBack] What are the solutions for a wizard like application (a single form with content changed depending on some action) in Firemonkey?
