NativeWindow.DestroyHandle Method


Destroys the window and its handle.

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


This method destroys the window associated with the Handle, sets the Handle property to 0, and calls the OnHandleChange method to reflect the change. Typically, you only call DestroyHandle when you are done with the native window.


The NativeWindow class automatically will destroy the associated window and release its resources in response to a WM_DESTROY message.
