WinUI3 : Lifecycle of the window



I wanted to check lifecycle of the WinUI3 window, when it will be cleared from the memory and who will be responsible for clearing all the content of the window and the window itself. What will happen when the window close is triggered and who is responsible for clearing all the contents of the window in WinUI3 desktop app.

I tried checking online for the official documentation on windows lifecycle, but was not able to find it.

It would be of great help if you could point me to the right documentation

Thank you

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    A Window is created by new or equivalents and is closed by Window.Close Method or Application.Exit Method.
    An instance of the object that is specified by the root element of the XAML file is maintained by WindowsAppSDK and you must free your resources.

    Thank you.
