WindowsFormsSynchronizationContext.Dispose Method ()


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Releases all resources used by the WindowsFormsSynchronizationContext.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

abstract Dispose : unit -> unit
override Dispose : unit -> unit

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