ExportLifetimeContext<T>.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the ExportLifetimeContext<T> class, including its associated export.

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

public void Dispose()



Disposing of a ExportLifetimeContext<T> object calls the referenced method to release its associated export.

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