I want to dispose the devDB context object in the below code.

private static void InitContainer()


     var devDB = new TestContext(constr); 



                    .RegisterInstance<IRepository<User>>(new Repository<User>(devDB))


private static void CleanUp()


    if (Container != null)





I tried a using statement, but the I receive the following error:

The ObjectContext instance has been disposed and can no longer be used for operations that require a connection.

How can I dispose devDB correctly?

Hi Tanuj,

Use using statements:

using(var devDB = new TestContext(constr))


    // rest of your code


It will automatically Dispose your variable if it's Disposable.
