Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Protected Overridable Sub Dispose ( _
    disposing As Boolean _

protected virtual void Dispose(
    bool disposing
)

Parameters

Remarks

This method is called only by the public Dispose method and finalizer; do not call this method directly.

When you implement the dispose pattern, the BinaryReader.Dispose(Boolean) method should be used as follows:

  • The BinaryReader.Dispose() method of the current object should call BinaryReader.Dispose(Boolean) with the Boolean parameter set to true to release both managed and unmanaged resources.

  • The finalizer of the current object should call BinaryReader.Dispose(Boolean) with the Boolean parameter set to false to release only unmanaged resources.
