SymmetricAlgorithm.Dispose Method

Definition

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

Overloads

Dispose()

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

Dispose(Boolean)

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

Dispose()

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

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

Implements

Remarks

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

For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.

Note

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

Dispose(Boolean)

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

protected:
 virtual void Dispose(bool disposing);
protected virtual void Dispose (bool disposing);
abstract member Dispose : bool -> unit
override this.Dispose : bool -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub Dispose (disposing As Boolean)

Parameters

disposing
Boolean

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

Remarks

This method is called by the public Dispose() method and the Finalize method. Dispose() invokes the protected Dispose(Boolean) method with the disposing parameter set to true. Finalize invokes Dispose with disposing set to false.

When the disposing parameter is true, this method releases all resources held by any managed objects that this SymmetricAlgorithm 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(Boolean), be careful not to reference objects that have been previously disposed in an earlier call to Dispose. For more information about how to implement Dispose(Boolean), see Implementing a Dispose Method.
