Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the base Control class is in the process of disposing; otherwise, false.

When this property returns true, the baseControl class is in the process of disposing. After the control is disposed of, it can no longer be referenced as a valid Windows control. Even though the instance of a control is disposed of, it is still maintained in memory until it is removed from memory through garbage collection. When a control is disposed of, you cannot call its RecreateHandle method.
