ImportEngine.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the ImportEngine 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 ImportEngine. The Dispose method leaves the ImportEngine in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the ImportEngine so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the ImportEngine 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 ImportEngine. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the ImportEngine object's Finalize method.
