I have created a MdiForm with its various child forms.When I run my exe on the top right hand corner I have my X button which closes the exe. This is fine when the Mdiform is shown I want the user to be able to exit this way but when I am in a child form and they want to cancel the screen they click this X button also. This then closes the exe but when I am in a child screen I only want to close that screen not the exe.

Each child form should have thier own close button in the upper corner that will only close THAT child window. If your child windows have the close button disabled and all they see is the close button of the Midi parent window, then you will need to trap the close event of the Midi parent window by using the query_unload event of the Midi parent window, determine what child window is open and then close that window and cancel the application close.
