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

public WeakReference(
	Object target,
	bool trackResurrection
)

Parameters

target
Type: System.Object

An object to track.

trackResurrection
Type: System.Boolean

Indicates when to stop tracking the object. If true, the object is tracked after finalization; if false, the object is only tracked until finalization.

If trackResurrection is false, a short weak reference is created. If trackResurrection is true, a long weak reference is created.

Windows Mobile for Pocket PC, Windows Mobile for Smartphone, Windows CE Platform Note: Short weak references are supported on the .NET Compact Framework, but long weak references are not supported. When you use this method, you must set the trackResurrection parameter to false.

The following example creates a cache of data objects with short weak references. This example is part of a larger example provided for the WeakReference class.

// Add data objects with a  
 // short weak reference to the cache. 
for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
 {
     _cache.Add(i, new WeakReference(new Data(i), false));
 }
