Bitmap.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by this Image.

This member is overloaded. For complete information about this member, including syntax, usage, and examples, click a name in the overload list.

Public method Dispose() Releases all resources used by this Image. (Inherited from Image.)
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the Image and optionally releases the managed resources. (Inherited from Image.)


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