AtomicComposition.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the AtomicComposition class, and mark this composition operation as failed.

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