closing an app with multiple forms

If I have an app that has Form1 and Form2. When I open the app Form1 is
displyed, I do some stuff then open Form2 and set Form1 visibility to False.
If I want to totally close the application now closing all forms how do I do
that?

Me.Dispose() doesn't close Form1

Thanks

you need to do a Close() of form1, and that should be all there is to it.

Hi. I have an MDI Parent form with multiple child windows. When I close the parent form, the Closing events of the children forms are not executing. Do I have to close all the child forms in the parent's closing event in order to get the closing events of the children forms to execute? Thanks. -Barry

For some reason, when I click the X to close my MDI parent form, the action appears to be re-directed to one of the MDI child forms, and the parent remains open. I am then unable to close the application. What should happen, is that the main MDI form should close, taking the child forms with it. There is code to loop through the child forms,...

Does it make sense to put this If e.Cancel Then Exit Sub at the beginning of form closing events so if the user cancels the app's exiting in one Closing routine he will not be asked again by another when its form Closing routine is run? I guess what I'm asking is will that work. If one form sets e.cancelled to true will e.cancel be...
