Properly closing a VB app
Posted on 1998-09-09
A VB 5.0 app I've developed has a quirk - sometimes when the app is closed with the 'X' in the title bar the app will appear to close but will still show as open in the task manager (Win95 and NT 4.0). If I use the menu File->Exit option I coded into the app this doesn't seem to happen. The app is small - about 3 forms (1 main and 2 forms called off the main one - all shown vbModal). Also - although the app is shown as open in the task manager I can't switch to it or alt-tab to activate it. Any suggestions?
