PropertyTab.Dispose Method

Releases all the resources used by the PropertyTab.

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

public virtual void Dispose()

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