TextWriter.Dispose Method ()

 

Releases all resources used by the TextWriter object.

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

public void Dispose()

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

For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.

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