Method XbpFont():destroy() Foundation

Unloads the font and releases the memory used by the font.

:destroy() --> self

This method returns the object executing the method (self).


The :destroy() method removes a loaded font from memory. It is the counterpart of the :create() method and is analogous to closing a file. This method can be executed to explicitly release system resources.

The method :destroy() is not generally required for Xbase Parts. However, it should always be executed for an XbpFont object as soon as the font is no longer needed. This is because loaded fonts take a considerable amount of memory.
