StreamWriter.Dispose Method (Boolean)

Releases the unmanaged resources used by the StreamWriter and optionally releases the managed resources.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration
Protected Overrides Sub Dispose ( _
	disposing As Boolean _
)

Parameters

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

The current encoding does not support displaying half of a Unicode surrogate pair.

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

Notes to Inheritors

Dispose can be called multiple times by other objects. When overriding Dispose, be careful not to reference objects that have been previously disposed in an earlier call to Dispose.

This method calls the dispose method of the base class, TextWriter.Dispose.
