DeriveBytes.Dispose Method

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

When overridden in a derived class, releases all resources used by the current instance of the DeriveBytes class.

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

public void Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the DeriveBytes. The Dispose method leaves the DeriveBytes in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the DeriveBytes so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the DeriveBytes was occupying.

For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.

NoteNote

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