protected virtual void Dispose (
         bool disposing


  • disposing
    Type: Boolean
    [MarshalAsAttribute(U1)] true to release both managed and unmanaged resources; false to release only unmanaged resources.


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(Boolean) with disposing set to false.

When the disposing parameter is true, this method releases all resources held by any managed objects that this GraphicsResource 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 disposed of in an earlier call to Dispose.
