UdpClient.IDisposable.Dispose Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Releases all resources used by the UdpClient.

Namespace:  System.Net.Sockets
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

void IDisposable.Dispose()



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

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