ApplicationContext.Dispose Method ()


Releases all resources used by the ApplicationContext.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public void Dispose()

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