What are you doing in your application? Maybe you should try to close
working threads and processes inside your application, dispose objects
and then "shutdown" the application (if it doesn't exit automatically,
you can use 'Application.Ex itThread').

Ah ok, nothing complicated byt that got me thinking. The application.exi t
didnt seem to be running when in the "new" method of the screen just being

So i made it check and exit if necessary before i do application.run ()

I'm trying to exit a Windows Forms application while in the form's constructor (after InitializeComponent() has been called) and am finding that calling Application.Exit () still leaves the form displayed and running. Trying to force the form to close with this.Close() does not work either. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Normally, a dotNET application will throw an exception when something goes wrong, and the exception can be caught easily and reported to the user. However, users have been reporting that our application just simply vanishes without any warning. No exception seems to be thrown, otherwise it would have been caught. It is also seemingly undeterministic, making it really hard for us to find out the cause of the problem. If the application...

I know this sounds ridiculous but I am having problems when exiting/sighing out of my application. I have two forms, Login and Main. On Main form, I have two buttons, Sign Out and Exit.

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 . It closes and ends the application, and closes the NotifyIcon I have specified for this application. When I use Application.Exit it closes the form and ends the application but the NotifyIcon doesn't remove itself unless you hover a mouse cursor...

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...

I am having a curious problem... When 'Application.Exit()' command is executed in my program it does not end. I set a breakpoint in the 'Dispose' methid that never gets called (yes, I am in Debug mode) - what gives... this is certianly strange bahavior. The code that I am running is below, I added Stop statements to alert me when the applicaiton.exit() fails to quit the app... Anyone have any ideas - I'm stuck!

Hi, I have a problem with Application.Run() when Windows is shutting down. Please have a look at the copy&paste example program below. The application has no forms. It has only got a notify icon in the system tray and it uses Application.Run() to keep the message loop running. When the user clicks the icon, the application should shut down and exit. So far that works fine.

Is the following the most elegant way to exit a multi-threaded application on a Ctrl-C? I am a complete beginner and would have thought there was some way of doing it without having to use while 1: pass, but have yet to find a way. N.B. exit() is a method for cleanly exiting the thread using a queue. Many thanks Jon
