CompositionContainer::Dispose Method ()

.NET Framework (current version)

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the CompositionContainer class.

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

virtual void Dispose() sealed

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