July 28, 2014

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

'Declaration
Public Sub Dispose

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose

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

NoteNote:

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