ImageAttributes::Dispose Method ()


Releases all resources used by this ImageAttributes object.

Namespace:   System.Drawing.Imaging
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

virtual void Dispose() sealed

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