ZipArchive.Dispose Method

.NET Framework 4.5

Releases the resources used by the current instance of the ZipArchive class.

Namespace:  System.IO.Compression
Assembly:  System.IO.Compression (in System.IO.Compression.dll)

abstract Dispose : unit -> unit  
override Dispose : unit -> unit



This method finishes writing the archive and releases all resources used by the ZipArchive object. Unless you construct the object by using the ZipArchive(Stream, ZipArchiveMode, Boolean) constructor overload and set its leaveOpen parameter to true, all underlying streams are closed and no longer available for subsequent write operations.

When you are finished using this instance of ZipArchive, call Dispose() to release all resources used by this instance. You should eliminate further references to this ZipArchive instance so that the garbage collector can reclaim the memory of the instance instead of keeping it alive for finalization.

Dispose() calls the Dispose(Boolean) method, which contains the code to release managed and unmanaged resources. For more information, see Implementing a Dispose Method.
