EventHandlerList.Dispose Method

Disposes the delegate list.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public void Dispose()

Implements

IDisposable.Dispose()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the EventHandlerList. The Dispose method leaves the EventHandlerList in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the EventHandlerList so the memory it was occupying can be reclaimed by garbage collection.

NoteNote

Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the EventHandlerList. Otherwise, the resources the EventHandlerList is using will not be freed until garbage collection calls the EventHandlerList object's destructor.
