HttpWebResponse.IDisposable.Dispose Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Releases all resources used by the HttpWebResponse.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

void IDisposable.Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

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

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