ReleaseGUIObject

The functionality provided by GUIKit has been superseded by the interface construction and controls functions native to the built-in Wolfram Language.

ReleaseGUIObject[obj]

closes and terminates all resources of a live GUIObject instance.

Details and Options

  • To use ReleaseGUIObject, you first need to load GUIKit using Needs["GUIKit`"].
  • ReleaseGUIObject programmatically ends an interface's session (which is normally ended interactively by user actions such as closing the window), both closing and disposing of all related resources.
  • ReleaseGUIObject forces the termination of interface resources even if an initial GUIRun might have requested that the interface live on past its closing by using the option ReleaseMethod->Manual.
  • Use CloseGUIObject instead of ReleaseGUIObject to ensure the original life cycle intent of a GUIRun call.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

Create a live interface object:

Verify that the interface is active:

Remove its resources:

Confirm that the interface is no longer valid:

Scope  (2)

Create a modeless live interface object:

Shut it down:

Verify that the interface is no longer valid:

Create a modeless live interface object, specifying a manual ReleaseMethod:

Attempt to close the interface:

Test whether the interface is still valid:

Terminate the interface:

Verify that it is no longer valid:
