UdpAnySourceMulticastClient.Dispose Method

Leaves the multicast group and releases all resources used by the current instance of the UdpAnySourceMulticastClient class and the underlying Socket.

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

<SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute> _
Public Sub Dispose



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


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