Understanding Object Lifetime

  • Andrew Troelsen


At this point in the text, you have learned a great deal about how to build custom class types using C#. Here, you will come to understand how the CLR is managing allocated objects via garbage collection. C# programmers never directly deallocate a managed object from memory (recall there is no delete keyword in the C# language). Rather, .NET objects are allocated onto a region of memory termed the managed heap, where they will be automatically destroyed by the garbage collector “sometime in the future.”
