Component.Finalize Method

Releases unmanaged resources and performs other cleanup operations before the Component is reclaimed by garbage collection.

[C#] In C#, finalizers are expressed using destructor syntax.

[C++] In C++, finalizers are expressed using destructor syntax.

[Visual Basic]
Overrides Protected Sub Finalize()
protected override function Finalize();


Calls Dispose with the disposing parameter set to false to free unmanaged resources.

This method overrides Object.Finalize. Application code should not call this method; an object's Finalize method is automatically invoked during garbage collection, unless finalization by the garbage collector has been disabled by a call to the GC.SuppressFinalize method.

For more information about Object.Finalize and Dispose, see Finalize Methods and Destructors, Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources, and Overriding the Finalize Method.
