Memory Warning Received and PushViewController

leave a comment »

It was really  great investigation about why iOS application goes to black screen and craches sometimes.

Fisrst of all, I saw this: Received memory warning. Level 1

After that it goes to black screen. This is very interesting, application was working fine if no applications was started in background (I imagined – there are no free memory… but strange…). But, as I can see later, this is view was unloaded only. Several articles wrote – if view has no SuperView it will be unloaded when UIViewController receive memory warning. But this was obviously our fault. After huge  changes in UI we decided to use only one UIWebView. But some code was moved to new version, and  PushViewController invoke too. This is not clear for me now what exactly change this method, but it do something and view unloading after memory warning receive.  So we just remove this line and no black screen (means unloaded view) now.
