Application.Exi t() vs End

Is there any difference between Application.Exi t() and End?
Are there circumstances when I should use one instead of the other?

You should try to avoid using both of them...

Thanks for the comment. I have a context menu with a "Exit" option. Is
there an alternative that I am not aware of?

Also, assuming it is one or the other, is there a difference?

Thank,

So then how should you close your application?

Close the baseform
with me.close

And never use End, that is killing your application not closing it.

I write forever that poweroff is better than End.

Exit is exit,

End is ending your application direct, it stays in memory however it stops
processesing and stays there probably until powerdown.

The use of End without a further keyword such as Sub or Class, is not
supported and should not be used. Exit is used to terminate a block of code
for example. In this example anything after Exit Sub would not be executed.

Sub Mine()

'First Statement

Exit Sub

'Second Statement

End Sub

As others suggest You should close all your open resources and then cleanly
exit by either closeing the base form or getting to the end of your Sub Main
if thats how you started the application.

Me.Close()

.... if it is your main form. If there are other forms, you should close
them before closing the main form.

Depending on how your application's message loop was started,
'Application.Ex itThread' might be necessary to exit the application after
closing the forms. Make sure you take a look at the 'ApplicationCon text'
class too.

Thanks, I'll use that from now on.

I'm sure you are right. However, I picked up this nasty habit from the book
Step by Step (version 2003).
Quoting from the end of page 113:
"The End statement stops the program when the user is finished."
In the sample programs provided, that method is used whenever he wants to
stop the program.

Strange stuff...

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).
