C# delete a folder and all files and folders within that folder

I'm trying to delete a folder and all files and folders within that folder, I'm using the code below and I get the eror "Folder is not empty", any suggestions on what I can do?

Thanks

try
{
var dir = new DirectoryInfo(@FolderPath);
dir.Attributes = dir.Attributes & ~FileAttributes.ReadOnly;
dir.Delete();
dataGridView1.Rows.RemoveAt(dataGridView1.SelectedRows[i].Index);
}
catch (IOException ex)
{
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
}

Answer
dir.Delete(true); // true => recursive delete
