    'Delete'

    45us

      Ok, I have a question mark existing in my brain so long.

       

      "Do we need to use 'delete' command to delete something if we create something before like new XXX ?"

       

            in this case, I have a function that will be called several times

            in the function, i need to empty all element of three array. So

            I think the easy way is just to  create new one. The thing is

            'should I delete the previous array memory?" or the garbage collection can handle the memory thing.


             timeData = new Array();
             distanceData = new Array();
             timeData = new Array();

       

       

       

           thanks for your contribution.

          Hi,

                 Make the object to null when you feel that the use with that object has been finished.

                         timeData = null;

                 When object is null it will be cleaned by Garbage Collector.
