Hi, im working with the AppStudio for ArcGIS and I noticed that the memory is not released properly in many applications made by Esri like Palm Spring Map Tour, Map Tour, Survey 123 (when i use de barcode scanner)

BarcodeDecoder:

I'm developing an application where i have to use a barcode scanner and after some failed barcode scanning the memory usage increase too much.
As i was having troubles with it, I downloaded and used exactly the same code of the survey 123 to decode barcodes and I still having the same behaviour.

The same happens with the barcode scanner of the AppStudio Player.

I attached some videos

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you solve this please let me know because I could use the solution in an applicaton that I'am developing

Thank you.

Hi Rodrigo,

From the video it appears that your device is Android?

Can you elaborate what kind of device it is? Of particularly interest is which OS?

There's several components used in Barcode scanning:

- Image Capture to memory and/or disk

- Barcode Decoder library

I don't suppose you would be able to help us narrow this down?

This would involve writing variations to the app that:

(1) Turns on the Barcode Decoder itself, and focus on the Image Capture

(2) Turn of the Image Capture, i.e. lock it to a still image, but run the Barcode Decoder library repeatedly.

I will try to follow those steps and I write back.

Can u help me with this? AppStudio for ArcGIS / Map memory leaks 
Because in Survey123 this works fine.
Looking at the code, of Survey123 template in appstudio I have a doubt about this:

After searching for a .qml with Map controler in the code, to see the implementation, I found XFormGeopointControl.qml.

Looking at the imports, those are the following:

import QtQuick 2.5

import QtQuick.Controls 1.4

import QtQuick.Layouts 1.1

import QtLocation 5.3

import QtPositioning 5.3

import QtGraphicalEffects 1.0

import ArcGIS.AppFramework 1.0
import ArcGIS.AppFramework.Controls 1.0
import "XForm.js" as JS

But just with those imports I can not use the Map Controler. Am i missing something?

Thank you.

After some test I found this function

 
function scanGrab() {

          videoOutput.grabToImage(function(res) {

                         decodeGrab(res.image);

        } );
  }

grabToImage what it does according qt documentation is "Grabs the item into an in-memory image". 

I think this memory used is not beign released at all.

function
scanGrab() { //THIS LEAKS MEMORY

          videoOutput.grabToImage(function(res) {

                         //decodeGrab(res.image);// I comment this

                        

        } );
  }


function
scanGrab() { // THIS NO LEAKS MEMORY

          videoOutput.grabToImage(function(res) {

                         //decodeGrab(res.image);// I comment this

                         res.destroy();

        } );
  }

With this function I have not more memory leak


function
scanGrab() { // THIS NO LEAKS MEMORY

          videoOutput.grabToImage(function(res) {

                         //decodeGrab(res.image);// I comment this

                         res.destroy();

        } );
  }
However I still having memory leak with this
function scanGrab() {

          videoOutput.grabToImage(function(res) {

                         decodeGrab(res.image);

                         res.destroy();

        } );
  }

decodeGrab was implemented like this

function decodeGrab(image) {
   imageObject.image = image;
   imageObject.clip(captureFrame.x + 5, captureFrame.y + 5, captureFrame.width - 10, captureFrame.height - 10);
   var testColor = imageObject.pixel(imageObject.width >> 1, imageObject.height >> 1);
   if (Qt.colorEqual(testColor, "black")) {
      scanMode = scanModeCapture;
      scanCapture();
      return;
   }
   barcodeDecoder.rotated = false;
   barcodeDecoder.decode(imageObject.url);
}

I tried by making imageObject dynamic in order to destroy it after it usage perhaps this was leaking memory, so after made some changes both functions 

 function scanGrab() {
            videoOutput.grabToImage(function(res) {
                createImageObject();//create imageObject dinamically
                imageObject.image = res.image;
                decodeGrab()
                res.destroy();
            } );
    }
    //--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    function decodeGrab() {
        imageObject.clip(captureFrame.x + 5, captureFrame.y + 5, captureFrame.width - 10, captureFrame.height - 10);
        var testColor = imageObject.pixel(imageObject.width >> 1, imageObject.height >> 1);
        /*if (Qt.colorEqual(testColor, "black")) {
            scanMode = scanModeCapture;
            scanCapture();
            return;
        }*/
        barcodeDecoder.rotated = false;
        barcodeDecoder.decode(imageObject.url);
        imageObject.destroy();
    }

But still leaking memory. Now i think it's barcodeDecoder.decode method.


I hope all this can help you.
