protected override void Dispose(
	bool disposing


Type: System.Boolean

true to release both managed and unmanaged resources; false to release only unmanaged resources.

Call Dispose when you are finished using the PropertyGrid. The Dispose method leaves the PropertyGrid in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the PropertyGrid so the memory it was occupying can be reclaimed by garbage collection.


Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the PropertyGrid. Otherwise, the resources the PropertyGrid is using will not be freed until garbage collection calls the destructor of PropertyGrid.
