CryptoAPITransform.Dispose Method ()

.NET Framework (current version)

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the CryptoAPITransform class.

Namespace:   System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public void Dispose()

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