Aspose.cells.workbook does not implement System.IDisposable

dear support,

It is currently not possible to declare a Using statement ( VB .NET ) with a workbook object as aspose.cells.workbook does not implement System.IDisposable.
Having this would creatly facilitate the disposable of these unmanaged variables.

Any ideas ?

thanks for your thoughts,


Hi Guido,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

Workbook object does not use any unmanaged resources and it is purely .NET object. Why do you need us to implement System.IDisposable interface.

Please explain your requirements in more detail. It will help us look into your issue more closely and precisely and we will log it in our database as a new feature request so that it could be implemented in our future versions.

in .NET, the Using…EndUsing mechanism offers considerable advantges for cleaning up unused variables and avoide memory leaks, in addition to the default Garbage Collector.

However, it requires the IDisposable mechanism.
In any case, it is not a big problem, the programmer just needs to be a bit more carefull the avoid memory leaks.
