X509WindowsSecurityToken.Dispose Method ()


Releases all resources used by the X509WindowsSecurityToken.

Namespace:   System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public override void Dispose()

Call the Dispose method when you are finished using the X509WindowsSecurityToken. The Dispose method leaves the X509WindowsSecurityToken in an unusable state. After calling the Dispose method, you must release all references to the X509WindowsSecurityToken so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the X509WindowsSecurityToken was occupying.


Always call the Dispose method before you release your last reference to the X509WindowsSecurityToken. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the X509WindowsSecurityToken object's Finalize method.
