public void Dispose()

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