BinaryReader.Dispose Method

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

Namespace:  System.IO
Assemblies:   System.IO (in System.IO.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public void Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

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