SemaphoreSlim.Dispose Method

July 28, 2014

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the SemaphoreSlim class.

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

public void Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the SemaphoreSlim. The Dispose method leaves the SemaphoreSlim in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the SemaphoreSlim so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the SemaphoreSlim was occupying.

For more information, see [A17B0066-71C2-4BA4-9822-8E19332FC213] and [eb4e1af0-3b48-4fbc-ad4e-fc2f64138bf9].

NoteNote:

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