PaintEventArgs.Dispose Method ()


Releases all resources used by the PaintEventArgs.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public void Dispose()

Call Dispose() when you are finished using the PaintEventArgs. The Dispose() method leaves the PaintEventArgs in an unusable state. After calling Dispose(), you must release all references to the PaintEventArgs so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the PaintEventArgs was occupying. For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.


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