BinaryReader.Dispose Method (Boolean)

Releases the unmanaged resources used by the BinaryReader class and optionally releases the managed resources.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
abstract Dispose : 
        disposing:bool -> unit 
override Dispose : 
        disposing:bool -> unit 

Parameters

disposing
Type: System.Boolean
true to release both managed and unmanaged resources; false to release only unmanaged resources.

This method is called by Dispose and Finalize. By default, this method specifies the disposing parameter as true. Finalize specifies the disposing parameter as false.

When the disposing parameter is true, this method releases all resources held by any managed objects that this BinaryReader references. This method invokes the Dispose method of each referenced object.

Notes to Inheritors

BinaryReader.Dispose can be called multiple times by other objects. When overriding this method, be careful not to reference objects that have been previously disposed of in an earlier call to Dispose. For more information about how to implement this method, see Implementing a Dispose Method.
