DataGridViewBand.Dispose Method ()

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Releases all resources used by the DataGridViewBand.

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

public void Dispose ()
public final void Dispose ()
public final function Dispose ()

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