DocumentPage.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the DocumentPage.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public virtual void Dispose()
You cannot use methods in XAML.



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