CmdletProvider.Stop Method

Frees resources before the provider is removed from the runspace. The Windows PowerShell runtime calls this method to allow the provider a chance to stop and clean up its resources before the runtime removes the provider.

Namespace: System.Management.Automation.Provider
Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)



protected virtual void Stop ()
protected void Stop ()
protected function Stop ()

The default implementation of this method does nothing. However, providers can use this method to free any resources that the provider is using before the provider is removed by the Windows PowerShell runtime. Note that the provider cannot stop the Windows PowerShell runtime from removing the provider.

For more information about providers, see Windows PowerShell Providers.
