When you are using an object that encapsulates any resource, you have to make sure that when you are done with the object, the object's Dispose method is called. This can be done more easily using the using statement in C#. The using statement simplifies the code that you have to write to create and then finally clean up the object. The using statement obtains the resource specified, executes the statements and finally calls the Dispose method of the object to clean up the object.

The using statement is mostly used when you need to one or more resources in a segment. The using statement obtains one or various resources, executes them and then releases the objects or resources. It is widely used in database connectivity through C#.

using System;

namespace Using_Statement
  class check_using : IDisposable
     public void Dispose()
        Console.WriteLine("Execute  Second");

  class Program
     static void Main(string[] args)
        using(check_using c=new check_using())
           Console.WriteLine("Executes First");
        Console.WriteLine("Execute Third");

In the above example, the using statement calling the check_using class to execute. So, it first executes the using block, then executes the check_using class and finally executes the last statements.


Executes First 
Execute  Second 
Execute Third
