CancellationTokenSource.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the CancellationTokenSource class.

Namespace:  System.Threading
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub Dispose

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose

Call Dispose when you are finished using the CancellationTokenSource. The Dispose method leaves the CancellationTokenSource in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the CancellationTokenSource so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the CancellationTokenSource 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 CancellationTokenSource. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the CancellationTokenSource object's Finalize method.
