ZipArchive::Dispose Method (Boolean)

.NET Framework 4.5

Called by the Dispose() and Finalize() methods to release the unmanaged resources used by the current instance of the ZipArchive class, and optionally finishes writing the archive and releases the managed resources.

Namespace:  System.IO.Compression
Assembly:  System.IO.Compression (in System.IO.Compression.dll)

virtual void Dispose(
	bool disposing


Type: System::Boolean

true to finish writing the archive and release unmanaged and managed resources; false to release only unmanaged resources.

If disposing is set to true, all underlying streams are closed and no longer available for subsequent write operations, unless you construct the object by using the ZipArchive(Stream, ZipArchiveMode, Boolean) constructor overload and set its leaveOpen parameter to true.

This method is called only by the public Dispose() and Finalize() methods; do not call this method directly.

When you implement the dispose pattern, the Boolean parameter of the Dispose(Boolean) method should be used as follows:

  • The Dispose() method of the current object should call Dispose(Boolean) with the Boolean parameter set to true to release both managed and unmanaged resources.

  • The Finalize() method of the current object should call Dispose(Boolean) with the Boolean parameter set to false to release only unmanaged resources.

For more information, see Implementing a Dispose Method.
