Thread: How to use the PSDL_Rect type

    How to use the PSDL_Rect type

    I have created a PSDL_Rect object using the new command, can anyone tell me how to then free this object to release the memory. Ive tried different methods but keep getting access violations.

    (I use FPC's SDL units, so it's barely different)

    You shouldn't (AFAIK) need to create or free a rect.
    [pascal]
    procedure useless;
    var
    r: TSDL_Rect;
    begin
    r.x := 0;
    r.y := 0;
    r.w := 100;
    r.h := 100;
    SDL_BlitSurface(img,nil,scr,@r);
    end;
    [/pascal]
    Keep in mind I haven't actually checked for memory leaks this way but even the C++ SDL tutorials on the internet don't seem to bother creating or freeing the rects.

    I'm using the PSDR_Rect and not the TSDR_Rect. The one I use is a pointer to a rect so I create it by using "new". I'm guessing it should be freed but thanks for you reply.

    You should dispose it with the Dispose function, but really, why bother?

    Why not use pointers to an automatically allocated TSDL_Rect?
