TcpClient.Finalize Method

Frees resources used by the TcpClient class.

Namespace:  System.Net.Sockets
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

'Declaration
Protected Overrides Sub Finalize

Implements

Object.Finalize

This method overrides Object.Finalize. Application code should not call this method; an object's Finalize method is automatically invoked during garbage collection, unless finalization by the garbage collector has been disabled by a call to the GC.SuppressFinalize method.

The TcpClient class finalizer closes the TCP connection and releases all managed resources associated with the TcpClient. These resources include the underlying Socket used for connecting with the remote host, and the NetworkStream used to send and receive data. The finalizer does not release any unmanaged resources.

For more information, see Finalize Methods and Destructors, Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources, and Overriding the Finalize Method.
