Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Does removing the widget from a parent means it is destroyed and frees up memory?

Thanks for answering!

Yes, providing it is not being reference by anything else. You can store the reference to a widget in a variable of its type, setting this variable to null and removing the widget from its parent will kick in the Garbage Collector and the widget will be automagically removed from memory. This happens a bit faster now in 4.17 according to the patch notes.
