WebResponse.Dispose Method (Boolean)

Called by the Dispose() and Finalize() methods to release the managed and unmanaged resources used by the current instance of the WebResponse class.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System.Net (in System.Net.dll)

protected virtual void Dispose(
	bool disposing
)

Parameters

disposing
Type: System.Boolean
true to release managed and unmanaged resources; false to release only unmanaged resources.

This method is called only by the public Dispose() and Finalize() methods; do not call this method directly.

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

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

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