I am using VB5.0 with MSSqlServer. My VB based application has a normal windows features (like three buttons at the top right of the title bar for 1.minimizing, 2.restoring 3. closing the window. I don't want user to close the window with this 'X' button push option as I am to do some processing before closing. There could be two ways to handle it :
1) disable 'X' button i.e. the right most button on the title bar.
2) i have option to program the functionality of this 'X' button so that I can attach my 'Close Window' processing code with it.
I wish to have an early reply.

To stop the Form unloading when pressing 'X' button

Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
    If UnloadMode = vbFormControlMenu Then Cancel = 1
End Sub

'Close Window' processing should be located in the Unload Event, that way no matter how the window is closed the code will run

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    'My Close code
End Sub
