The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Releases all resources used by the ComposablePartCatalog.

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel.Composition.Primitives
Assembly:  System.ComponentModel.Composition (in System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll)

virtual void Dispose() sealed

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