Enumerators implementing IDisposable

Hi

Short one: looking for a good example and an explanation of such
enumerators. I know MessageEnumerat or and ResourceReader do this, for
example, but what is the implementation of the enumerator doing that
needs a Dispose of its own?

Cheers!

Andrew,
I can see MessageEnumerat or implementing IDisposable if it is implemented in
terms of the underlying Windows API, where the API requires that you "close"
the "windows" handle that you are enumerating over.

For example if MessageEnumerat or is implemented in terms of MQCreateCursor,
MQCloseCursor. MQCloseCursor would need to be called by IDisposable...
However I haven't looked at the IL...

Hope this helps
Jay

Say you had a database query object, and you could get rows by enumerating
over it. You would want to close it when the enumeration was done.

Hi, I have a custom subclass of System.IO.Stream type. I wonder how to correctly implement the IDisposable pattern in this situation. The parent Stream type apparently uses explicit interface implementation, and I could not find a way for my child type to override parent's IDisposable.Dispose() method. The intention was to clean up child's resources first,

In a typical class, do I need to indicate that it implements the IDisposable interface and then create a Dispose method that implements the Dispose required by the IDisposable interface or can I just make a Sub Dispose() and the CLR will know that this is the Dispose method to call when the object falls out of scope? Thanks.

hi, My question is: 1. To avoid possible memory leaks, when you use this pattern, after you have dealth with the unmanaged resources and before you take your object off the finalize queue, how are you sure that your managed object resources are completely freed up of resources it's might be using? In my case below I have a private bool variable. Are there any other managed resource that you might need to explicitly free up in
