In my project, I have created around 12 custom controls(checkbox,radiobutton,editbox,progressbar,scrollbar,button etc...). Custom painting is done in all controls for the extended look and feel using Pen,Brushes,Graphics, GraphicPath,Images,Region and Bitmaps ect. After the use of these objects, I have disposed the objects using the Dispose() method. I am using these controls in a System.Windows Form. When I am contiously showing and closing the Form causes an increase in the GDI objecs each time. I have checked the GDI object count using Task Manager and confirmed the GDI leak in the form.
My question is, how can I manage this GDI leak?
How do I find which GDI object causes the leak eventhough I am disposing the GDI objects?
