Releases all resources used by the EncryptedPackageEnvelope.

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

public void Dispose()

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