Created Jan 21, 2014
Automatically implement the "if disposed, throw exception" pattern.
View UnlessDisposed
namespace ArkaneSystems.Arkane.Aspects
/// <summary>
/// An aspect which blocks calls to all public methods of a class implementing <see cref="IDisposable"/> once the class has
/// been disposed, instead throwing <see cref="ObjectDisposedException"/>. The class upon which this aspect is placed must
/// use the common pattern in which a private boolean field named 'disposed' is used to hold the disposed state.
/// </summary>
/// <remarks>
/// Private methods, static methods, and finalizers can still run when the class is disposed, as they may
/// be required for cleanup.
