HttpBaseProtocolFilter.Close HttpBaseProtocolFilter.Close HttpBaseProtocolFilter.Close HttpBaseProtocolFilter.Close HttpBaseProtocolFilter.Close Method

Definition

Closes the HttpBaseProtocolFilter instance and releases allocated resources.

public : void Close()
void Close() const;
// This member is not implemented in C#
' This member is not implemented in VB.Net
// This member is not implemented in JavaScript

Remarks

The Close method releases allocated resources used by the HttpBaseProtocolFilter instance. The Close method can be used to manage the lifetime of system resources (the network socket used by the HttpBaseProtocolFilter, for example) that are used by a Windows Runtime object.

In the .NET Framework 4.5, this method is projected as the Dispose method. In Visual C++ component extensions (C++/CX), this method is projected as part of the destructor (delete operator).

Apps written in JavaScript, C#, or VB.NET use garbage collection to release resources. So the HttpBaseProtocolFilter object and associated resources doesn't get released until the garbage collection pass runs. The Close method allows an app to release these resources early rather than waiting for the object to be released by garbage collection.

Apps written in C++ or CX don't have a Close method since these apps can destroy the object deterministically. In C++ and CX, objects are released when they fall out of program scope or as part of the destructor (delete operator) for the object.
