Marshal.ZeroFreeBSTR Method

Frees a BSTR pointer that was allocated using the SecureStringToBSTR method.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public static void ZeroFreeBSTR(
	IntPtr s
)

Parameters

s
Type: System.IntPtr

The address of the BSTR to free.

The ZeroFreeBSTR method first zeros out and then frees unmanaged memory that was allocated using the SecureStringToBSTR method.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
