Instance List: What does "Yes - Weak reference" mean?

Postby grauenwolf » Fri Jul 30, 2010 10:44 pm

In the "GC Root Object" column of the Instance List, what does it mean to be "Yes - Weak reference"?

Hi Jonathan,

Please see the answer to your question in this forum thread:
http://www.red-gate.com/messageboard/vi ... 8900#38900

I'm sorry that this hasn't been adequately covered in the ANTS Memory Profiler help previously; I have ensured that it will be included in the help for the forthcoming ANTS Memory Profiler version 6.

Regards,

Dom.

Is there a way to filter out weak references in the diagrams? It seems they are distracting from what is really keeping the object in memory?
