Component.Finalize Method

Releases unmanaged resources and performs other cleanup operations before the Component is reclaimed by garbage collection.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
'Declaration
Protected Overrides Sub Finalize

This method overrides Finalize. Application code should not call this method; an object's Finalize method is automatically invoked during garbage collection, unless finalization by the garbage collector has been disabled by a call to the SuppressFinalize method.

For more information, see Finalize Methods and Destructors, Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources, and Overriding the Finalize Method.
