DataReader.Close Method

Closes the DataReader instance.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data.dll)

public abstract void Close()

You should close data readers when the consumer has completed reading data or no longer wishes to read any more data. Closing the reader ensures that output parameters, if any, are populated.

Depending on the provider implementation, the Close method may wait for the data reader to finish returning all of the specified data before closing. Compare to the Terminate method.
