BinaryReader.Dispose Method (Boolean)

Called by the Dispose method and finalizer to release the managed and unmanaged resources used by the current instance of the BinaryReader class.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.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 method and finalizer; do not call this method directly.

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

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

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