close db connections

Posted on 2014-09-16

I have a function that I need to add code to dispose the opened database connection.
I am unsure where in the function to add :

        db = Nothing
without breaking the code accidentally.

Could I get some help in adding these lines of code to the existent code below?

Thank you.

The code is:

    Public Shared Function SendAdminEmail() As Boolean
        Dim ipAddress As String = ""
            ipAddress = HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try

        If (ipAddress > "") Then
            Dim db As Database = DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase(Globals.AppSettings("webdb"))
            Dim dbCommand As DbCommand = db.GetStoredProcCommand("VerifySendAdminEmail")
            db.AddInParameter(dbCommand, "@IPAddress", DbType.String, ipAddress)
            Dim ds As DataSet = db.ExecuteDataSet(dbCommand)
            If (Not ds Is Nothing) Then
                If (ds.Tables.Count > 0) Then
                    If (ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count > 0) Then
                        If (ds.Tables(0).Rows(0)(0).ToString = "0") Then
                            Return False
                        End If
                    End If
                End If
            End If
        End If
        Return True
    End Function
