AggregateExportProvider.Dispose Method

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

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

public void Dispose()



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


Supported in: 5, 4
