ShinobiChart memory problem in UITableViewCell (2)


Can i ask if anyone knows the best way to use ShinobiChart premium in a subclassed UITableViewCell?

I am currently displaying a simply pie chart or donut chart with just 2 values, but memory does not appear to be released when UItableView is scrolled out of view and when a cell comes back into view containing the chart memory increases, until finally crash memory error!

//values declared as
@property(nonatomic, retain)ShinobiChart *donutChart;
@property(nonatomic, retain)NSDictionary* graphData;
 graph and data initialised wirthin the tableviewcell
 self.graphData = @{@"val1": [NSNumber numberWithDouble:val1], @"val2" :[NSNumber val2]};
 self.donutChart = [[ShinobiChart alloc]initWithFrame:self.chartView.bounds];
 self.donutChart.licenseKey = @"MY LICENSE KEY";
 self.donutChart.datasource = self;
 self.donutChart.delegate = self;
 self.donutChart.legend.hidden = YES;
 self.donutChart.backgroundColor = [UIColorclearColor];
[self.chartView addSubview:self.donutChart];  // chartview is simply a UIView to contain the graph

Delegate methods;

- (NSInteger)numberOfSeriesInSChart:(ShinobiChart *)chart {
    return 1;
-(SChartDonutSeries *)sChart:(ShinobiChart *)chart seriesAtIndex:(NSInteger)index {
     SChartPieSeries* pieSeries = [[SChartPieSeriesalloc] init]; = YES; = YES;
 = [NSMutableArrayarrayWithObjects:[UIColorcolorWithHexString:PRIMARY_COLOUR_ASSESSMENTS], [UIColorcolorWithHexString:PRIMARY_COLOUR_CARECIRCLE], nil];
    pieSeries.selectedStyle.protrusion = 0.f;
     pieSeries.selectionAnimation.duration = @0.4;
    pieSeries.selectedPosition = @0.0;
     //pieSeries.innerRadius = 10.f;
    pieSeries.outerRadius = 50.f;
     pieSeries.gesturePanningEnabled = NO;
     UIColor* colour = [UIColorcolorWithHexString:MAIN_COLOUR];
    UIColor* colour1 = [UIColor colorWithRed:[colour red] green:[colour green] blue:[colour blue] alpha:0.3];
     [pieSeries.stylesetFlavourColors:[NSMutableArrayarrayWithArray:[NSArrayarrayWithObjects:colour1, colour, nil]]];
     SChartPieSeriesStyle *style = [[SChartPieSeriesStylealloc] init];
     style.labelFontColor = [UIColorredColor];
    style.showCrust = YES;
     style.crustThickness = [NSNumbernumberWithFloat:5.0];
     style.crustColors = [NSMutableArrayarrayWithObjects:[UIColorwhiteColor], [UIColorwhiteColor], nil];
    return pieSeries;
- (NSInteger)sChart:(ShinobiChart *)chart numberOfDataPointsForSeriesAtIndex:(NSInteger)seriesIndex {
- (id<SChartData>)sChart:(ShinobiChart *)chart dataPointAtIndex:(NSInteger)dataIndex forSeriesAtIndex:(NSInteger)seriesIndex {
     SChartRadialDataPoint *datapoint = [[SChartRadialDataPointalloc] init];
    NSString* key = self.graphData.allKeys[dataIndex]; = key;
    datapoint.value = self.graphData[key];
    return datapoint;




Hi michealb1969,

We’re not currently aware of any issues like this - would you mind showing us how you add the chart to the tableview? The tableview will perform virtualisation of the cells so you may be adding multiple charts to the same cell over and over, causing your memory growth.

Kind regards,
