FontFamily.Dispose FontFamily.Dispose FontFamily.Dispose FontFamily.Dispose Method


Releases all resources used by this FontFamily.

 virtual void Dispose();
public void Dispose ();
abstract member Dispose : unit -> unit
override this.Dispose : unit -> unit
Public Sub Dispose ()



Calling Dispose allows the resources used by this FontFamily to be reallocated for other purposes.

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