PrintPropertyDictionary.Dispose Method

Releases all the resources that are being used by the PrintPropertyDictionary.

Namespace:  System.Printing.IndexedProperties
Assembly:  System.Printing (in System.Printing.dll)

public void Dispose()



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