When you implement the dispose pattern, the BinaryWriter.Dispose(Boolean) method should be used as follows:

  • The BinaryWriter.Dispose method of the current object should call BinaryWriter.Dispose(Boolean) with the Boolean parameter set to true to release both managed and unmanaged resources.

  • The finalizer of the current object should call BinaryWriter.Dispose(Boolean) with the Boolean parameter set to false to release only unmanaged resources.
