LinkedResourceCollection.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the LinkedResourceCollection.

Namespace: System.Net.Mail
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public void Dispose ()
public final void Dispose ()
public final function Dispose ()
Not applicable.

Call Dispose when you are finished using the LinkedResourceCollection. The Dispose method leaves the LinkedResourceCollection in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the LinkedResourceCollection so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the LinkedResourceCollection occupied. For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.

This method invokes Dispose on all views in this collection. This method is called by the Dispose method. You do not need to call it in your application.


Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the LinkedResourceCollection. Otherwise, the resources it is using are not freed until the garbage collector calls the LinkedResourceCollection object's Finalize method.
