TcpClient.IDisposable.Dispose Method


Releases all resources used by the TcpClient.

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



Call IDisposable.Dispose when you are finished using the TcpClient. The IDisposable.Dispose method leaves the TcpClient in an unusable state. After calling IDisposable.Dispose, you must release all references to the TcpClient so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the TcpClient was occupying. For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.


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