[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Releases all resources used by the TextReader object.

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

'Declaration
Public Sub Dispose

Implements

IDisposable..::..Dispose()()()()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the TextReader. The Dispose method leaves the TextReader in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the TextReader so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the TextReader was occupying.

NoteNote

Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the TextReader. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the TextReader object's Finalize method.
