Finalize

Does Finalize on an object trigger in visual studio vb dot net debug mode when the session times out? I set a break point and it never showed up. Any thoughts?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The Finalize event only fires when the Garbage Collector (GC) destroys the object. The GC may not “collect” (destroy) the object until some time has elapsed. I.E., the GC works on its own schedule…

If you want to do some cleanup when you are done with an object, you should use Dispose instead and call that from your code when you are done with the object.
