Summary0002582: TJvTreeView is very slow, and gets slower with use. Memory leak?
DescriptionRun the code below. This shows the time it takes to load a standard TTreeView compared to a TJvTreeView. On my machine, the standard tree view loads the data in about 0.25 seconds each time it is tested. The TJvTreeView takes 30+ seconds the first time it is loaded, then 100 seconds the second time, 170 seconds the third time, 240 seconds the fourth time. Anybody spot a pattern?

In addition, the memory use goes up and up.

Tested in D7 Enterprise on Win2K.

I can see that as well.
Unfortunately, I have no time to investigate this any further.
Please use attached project for testing.

Ok, I tracked that one down, in JvComCtrls;pas:
I comes from the fact that CreateEnh in TJvTreeNode creates a TPopupMenu for every single node and makes the owner to be the TreeView, thus trigerring a call to Notification for each creation.
Further, the memory usage comes from the fact that the menus are not freed untilt the end of the application.
The thing is that I see no reason to create a popup menu per node as the property is not accessible at design time anyway.

So to fix this, I propose this:

1. Comment out Result.FPopupMenu := TPopupMenu.Create(AOwner.Owner);
at line 2207

2. At line 2759, add the following:
              if Assigned(TJvTreeNode(Selected).PopupMenu) then
just before the TJvTreeNode(Selected).PopupMenu.Popup call

That solved the problem for me, and I can't see any side effect as of yet.
Please let me know how it goes.
