Application.Exi t() vs Environmrnt.Exi t(0)

Hi All,
When I use applcation.exit () in winForm application, the form closed, but
the process is still going!! ( The debug process is still running if debug in
VS IDE). Environment.Exi t(0) works fine. But how to do in such following
scenario: if I need to give 2 option for user,1. Quit 2. Restart. In Quit
option, I use Environment.Exi t(0) to confirm the process will be stopped. In
Restart option, I can't use Environment.Exi t(0) , because following
application.res tart() can't execute never. but if i use Application.Exi t(),
the application can restart, but if the user choose quit next time. alas! the
process is going! it won't stop this time.
Hope my desception is clear :)
Pls Help!!!

On the topic of your zombie process:

Application.Exi t causes the Windows UI message loop of the current
thread, if any, to exit. Understanding this requires understanding that
Windows UIs are based around a simple loop that iteratively retrieves a
message and dispatches it. The loop is contained in code called by
Application.Run (). So, Application.Exi t will cause Application.Run () to
return. If the only non-background thread in your application is the one
that is showing a UI and which has called Application.Run () at some
point in the past, then the process will usually exit some time after
Application.Exi t is called, assuming not much other code follows the
call to Application.Run (). However, if there are other non-background
(Thread.IsBackg round) threads in the process, or your application does
something else after calling Application.Run , then the process won't
exit immediately.

Environment.Exi t(retCode) causes the process to exit, and is more like
the Windows API ExitProcess.

I suggest you break into the application in the debugger when it is
still executing yet has called Application.Exi t. Check each thread and
see where they are. Some of them will be CLR threads for finalization,
GC, debugging, etc., but there should be some user threads in there that
are keeping the process alive.

I am trying to close my application using Application.exit() in the frmMain_Closing event. When the form closes the process does not. My application only has one form (no other classes either). The form has a really long loop which generates approx. 700 .csv files. I do not create any threads myself (Application.exitthread() doesn't work either). To counteract this I have decided to use the Environment.exit(-1) method instead. What...

Hello All I have an application that has one form. I start the application using a Application.Run(New frmMain) command in Sub Main(). When I exit, the exit menu Item simply does a Me.Close .

How does one launch multiple forms in an application? Using Photoshop as an example, this application seems to be composed of many 'disjoint' forms. Yet, they all seem somewhat 'active' in contrast to one of them always being 'modal' (e.g., if you are moving over a picture the 'Info' form will update the (x,y) screen location in realtime even if not the selected form. Also note that this example implies the various forms can communicate...
