Component.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the Component.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public void Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the Component. The Dispose method leaves the Component in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the Component so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the Component was occupying. For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.

NoteNote

Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the Component. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the Component object's Finalize method.
