CancellationTokenSource.Dispose Method

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

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

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

public void Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the CancellationTokenSource. The Dispose method leaves the CancellationTokenSource in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the CancellationTokenSource so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the CancellationTokenSource was occupying.

For more information, see [A17B0066-71C2-4BA4-9822-8E19332FC213] and [eb4e1af0-3b48-4fbc-ad4e-fc2f64138bf9].

NoteNote:

Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the CancellationTokenSource. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the CancellationTokenSource object's Finalize method.
