Namespace:  System.Data.EntityClient
Assembly:  System.Data.Entity (in System.Data.Entity.dll)

protected override void Dispose(
	bool disposing
)

Parameters

disposing
Type: System.Boolean

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

SQL Server puts output parameters from stored procedures at the end of the result stream, after all the result sets. Therefore, to get output parameter values, an application must consume all the records in all the result sets. If the application closes the EntityDataReader (which would also close the DbDataReader), output parameters might not be populated.

[EntityDataReader] does not implicitly consume result sets to make output parameters available. Therefore, note the following:

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
