Function Map
Free a data buffer or container.
void MbufFree(
MIL_ID BufOrContainerBufId //in

This function deallocates a previously allocated data buffer or container. The memory reserved for the specified buffer or container is released.

All of a container's components are freed automatically when the container is freed. You can also free components manually using MbufFreeComponent(). MbufFree() cannot be used to free buffers that are components.

Before freeing a parent buffer or container, you must free all of its children.

Note that LUT buffers, once associated with another buffer, a digitizer, or a display, should either be disassociated before being freed, or freed after the associated buffer, digitizer, or display is freed.

To disassociate a digitizer or display from a LUT buffer, use MdigControl() with M_LUT_ID set to M_DEFAULT or MdispLut() with M_DEFAULT respectively. To disassociate another buffer from a LUT buffer, use MbufControl() with M_ASSOCIATED_LUT set to M_DEFAULT.

All buffers and containers allocated on a particular system must be freed before the system can be freed.

Note that this function reference has not been updated for a MIL system added during a MIL update. Refer to the MIL system's release note to see if there is complementary information.
