SecurityContext.Dispose Method


Releases all resources used by the current instance of the SecurityContext class.

 virtual void Dispose();
public void Dispose ();
abstract member Dispose : unit -> unit
override this.Dispose : unit -> unit
Public Sub Dispose ()



.NET 5+ (including .NET Core): In all cases.


Call Dispose when you are finished using the SecurityContext. The Dispose method leaves the SecurityContext in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the SecurityContext so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the SecurityContext was occupying.

For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.


Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the SecurityContext. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the SecurityContext object's Finalize method.
