ComposablePartExportProvider.Dispose Method

Releases all resources used by the current instance of the ComposablePartExportProvider class.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Composition.Hosting
Assembly:  System.ComponentModel.Composition (in System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll)

public void Dispose()



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