Uninitialize Method  

Uninitialize the control and release any system resources that were allocated.





Return Value



The Uninitialize method terminates any connection established by the control and resets the internal state of the control. This method is not typically used because any resources that have been allocated by an instance of the control will automatically be released when it is destroyed.

Each time the Initialize method is invoked, it increments an internal counter that keeps track of the number of times that it has been called by any thread in the current process. The Uninitialize method decrements this counter, and when the usage count drops to zero, the control will automatically unload the system libraries that it has dynamically loaded and will destroy the process heap that was allocated when the first instance of the control was created. An application should only call the Uninitialize method if it has explicitly called the Initialize method.

The Reset and Uninitialize methods will abort all active background transfers and wait for those tasks to complete before returning to the caller. It is recommended that your application explicitly wait for background transfers to complete or abort them using this method before allowing the program to terminate. This will ensure that your program can perform any necessary cleanup operations. If there are active background tasks running at the time that the control instance is destroyed, it can force the control to stop those worker threads immediately without waiting for them to terminate gracefully.
