Timer.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of Timer.

Namespace:  System.Threading
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

abstract Dispose : unit -> unit 
override Dispose : unit -> unit 

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

Calling Dispose allows the resources used by the Timer to be reallocated for other purposes. For more information about Dispose, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources.

NoteNote

Callbacks can occur after the Dispose() method overload has been called, because the timer queues callbacks for execution by thread pool threads. You can use the Dispose(WaitHandle) method overload to wait until all callbacks have completed.

The following code example shows how to free the resources held by a Timer.
