Client. Close Method

The Close method releases allocated resources used by the HttpClient instance. The Close method can manage the lifetime of system resources (the underlying socket and memory for the HttpClient, for example) used by a Windows Runtime object.
In the .NET Framework 4.5, this method projects as the Dispose method. In Visual C++ component extensions (C++/CX), this method projects as the destructor (delete operator).
Apps written in C++ or CX don't have a Close method since these apps can destroy the object. 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.
