ECDiffieHellmanPublicKey.Dispose Method (Boolean)


Releases the unmanaged resources used by the ECDiffieHellman class and optionally releases the managed resources.

Namespace:   System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

protected virtual void Dispose(
	bool disposing


Type: System.Boolean

true to release both managed and unmanaged resources; false to release only unmanaged resources.

This method executes in two distinct scenarios:

  • If disposing equals true, the method has been called directly or indirectly by a user's code. Managed and unmanaged resources can be disposed.

  • If disposing equals false, the method has been called by the runtime from inside the finalizer, and you should not reference managed resources. Only unmanaged resources can be disposed.

If you need to provide cleanup code for managed and unmanaged resources that an object created, you should override this method.

This method is called by the public Dispose()method and the Finalize method. Dispose() invokes the protected Dispose(Boolean) method with the disposing parameter set to true. Finalize invokes Dispose with disposing set to false.

When the disposing parameter is true, this method releases all resources held by any managed objects that this ECDiffieHellmanPublicKey references. This method invokes the Dispose() method of each referenced object.

Notes to Inheritors:

Dispose can be called multiple times by other objects. When overriding Dispose(Boolean) be careful not to reference objects that have been previously disposed of in an earlier call to Dispose. For more information about how to implement Dispose(Boolean), see Implementing a Dispose Method.
