Control.IsDisposed Property

Gets a value indicating whether the control has been disposed of.

[Visual Basic]
Public ReadOnly Property IsDisposed As Boolean
public bool IsDisposed {get;}
public: __property bool get_IsDisposed();
public function get IsDisposed() : Boolean;

Property Value

true if the control has been disposed of; otherwise, false.


When this property returns true, the control is disposed of and can no longer be referenced as a valid Windows control. Even though the instance of a control is disposed of, it is still maintained in memory until it is removed from memory through garbage collection. When a control is disposed, you can not call its RecreateHandle method.
