Basics[edit | edit source]
The IDisposable interface is implemented when an object needs to be "cleaned up" after use. If an object has a "Dispose" method, then it needs to be cleaned up after use.
The easiest way to clean up this sort of object is by using the VB keyword "Using".
Using f As New Form f.Show End Using
When an IDisposable object is a form-level variable, it should be disposed in the Form_Closed event.
Public Class Form1 Private mfrmChild As Form Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load mfrmChild = New Form mfrmChild.Text = "Child" mfrmChild.Show() End Sub Private Sub frmMain_FormClosed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosed mfrmChild.Dispose() End Sub End Class
