    release resource for WebClient class

    Hello everyone,


    I find there is no resource release method for WebClient class, e.g. a method called "Close".

    My usage scenario is,

    1. Creating a new instance of WebClient;
    2. Post byte[] data using UploadData method, and retrieve return data also using byte[].

    In my scenario, are there any need to call some methods to release the resource (I suepect there is request stream handle and response stream handle to release)?


    thanks in advance,
    George

    In the long run, the GC will take care of it. But WebClient is IDisposable, so why not use the "using" pattern:

    Code:
    using( WebClient wc = new WebClient() )
    {
    // do stuff with wc
    }
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
