Thetype exposes the following members.
|Close||Marks the handle for releasing and freeing resources. (Inherited from SafeHandle.)|
|DangerousAddRef||Manually increments the reference counter on SafeHandle instances. (Inherited from SafeHandle.)|
|DangerousGetHandle||Returns the value of the handle field. (Inherited from SafeHandle.)|
|DangerousRelease||Manually decrements the reference counter on a SafeHandle instance. (Inherited from SafeHandle.)|
|Dispose()||Releases all resources used by the SafeHandle class. (Inherited from SafeHandle.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|SetHandleAsInvalid||Marks a handle as no longer used. (Inherited from SafeHandle.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
This class should be used when working with native code that expects an NCRYPT_PROV_HANDLE.
This type implements the IDisposable interface. When you have finished using the type, you should dispose of it either directly or indirectly. To dispose of the type directly, call its Dispose method in a try/catch block. To dispose of it indirectly, use a language construct such as using (in C#) or Using (in Visual Basic). For more information, see the “Using an Object that Implements IDisposable” section in the IDisposable interface topic.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
