HttpWebResponse.IDisposable.Dispose Method


Releases all resources used by the HttpWebResponse.

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

 virtual void System.IDisposable.Dispose() = IDisposable::Dispose;
void IDisposable.Dispose ();
override this.System.IDisposable.Dispose : unit -> unit
abstract member System.IDisposable.Dispose : unit -> unit
override this.System.IDisposable.Dispose : unit -> unit
Sub Dispose () Implements IDisposable.Dispose



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