SqlCeConnection.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the SqlCeConnection class.

Namespace:  System.Data.SqlServerCe
Assembly:  System.Data.SqlServerCe (in System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll)

public void Dispose()

Call Dispose() when you are finished using the SqlCeConnection. The Dispose() method leaves the SqlCeConnection in an unusable state. After calling Dispose(), you must release all references to the SqlCeConnection so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the SqlCeConnection 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 SqlCeConnection. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the SqlCeConnection object's Finalize method.
