MSMQ Destruction

P: n/a

I have created MessageQueue called Req_MSMQ and have a PeekCompleted event added as follow
Req_MSMQ.PeekCompleted += new PeekCompletedEventHandler(OnRequestPeeked)

When I destroy this object (Req_MSMQ) as follow, It doesn't clean up Memory properly.
Req_MSMQ.PeekCompleted -= new PeekCompletedEventHandler(OnRequestPeeked)

But If i don't create the PeekCompleted event, everything looks fine

I used System.GC.GetTotalMemory(true) to get the free mem.. I know GC staff!!!... It eventually goes out of resources on long run. That is bad

Thanks in advanc

I had a similar problem
although I wasn't using an event callback, just a timeout on the peek

Usually, its a good idea to set the object to null as well as call Dispose. Same thing happens in java

try setting the object to null so as to indicate to the GC that there are no references and that its safe to actually clean out the object

Calling System.GC.Collect is merely a suggestion to the GC to run, it doesn't force GC -- at least that's what I've read in other groups and sites
