StreamWriter.Dispose Method (Boolean)


Releases the unmanaged resources used by the StreamWriter and optionally releases the managed resources.

Namespace:   System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

override Dispose : 
        disposing:bool -> unit


Type: System.Boolean

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

Exception Condition

The current encoding does not support displaying half of a Unicode surrogate pair.

When the disposing parameter is true, this method releases all resources held by any managed objects that this StreamWriter references. This method invokes the Dispose method of each referenced object.

Notes to Inheritors:

Dispose can be called multiple times by other objects. When overriding Dispose, be careful not to reference objects that have been previously disposed in an earlier call to Dispose.

This method calls the dispose method of the base class, TextWriter.Dispose.
