CacheDependency.DependencyDispose Method ()


Releases the resources used by the CacheDependency class and any classes that derive from CacheDependency.

Namespace:   System.Web.Caching
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

protected virtual void DependencyDispose()

Any class that derives from the CacheDependency class is required to implement this method to clean up resources the derived class has used.

The following code example shows a class that inherits from the CacheDependency class and overrides the DependencyDispose method. When this method is called, it sets a custom Boolean property named Disposed to true.

' Declare the class.
Public Class CustomCacheDependency 
   Inherits CacheDependency

     ' Constructor with no arguments 
     ' provided by CacheDependency class.
     Public Sub New()
     End Sub ' New

     ' Declare a Boolean field named disposedValue.
     ' This will be used by Disposed property.
     Private disposedValue As Boolean                

     ' Create accessors for the Disposed property.
     Public Property Disposed As Boolean
           Return disposedValue
       End Get
       Set (ByVal value As Boolean)
           disposedValue = value
       End Set
     End Property

     ' Create a public method that sets the latest
     ' changed time of the CustomCacheDependency
     ' and notifies the underlying CacheDependency that the 
     ' dependency has changed, even though the HasChanged
     ' property is false.
     Public Sub ResetDependency()
        If Me.HasChanged = False              
           NotifyDependencyChanged(Me, EventArgs.Empty)
        End If
     End Sub

     ' Overrides the DependencyDispose method to set the
     ' Disposed proerty to true. This method automatically
     ' notifies the underlying CacheDependency object to 
     ' release any resources associated with this class. 
     Protected Overrides Sub DependencyDispose()
        Disposed = True
     End Sub

 End Class
