Exit VB program...

It will be very much appreciated if anyone VB expert will help me this.
Many Thanks in advance.

I had this VB Database updating program call sample.exe,
What can I do to let the program go directly to the VB runing interface rather than VB design form once I click on my sample.exe file.

Rgds

Is this what you mean?:
Right-click the project file and select "Run" instead of the default "Open". This will load the project and cause VB to immediately begin running it.

Your question is a bit confusing to me, however, if you mean that the wrong form is displayed when you execute your program, here is what you should do.

1. Open your VB project in design mode.

2. From the Project menu, select 'Project Properties'.

3. From the 'Startup Object' dropdown list, select the name of the form you want to see when you execute your program.

4. Click OK.

5. From the File menu, select 'Make Sample.exe'.

6. Exit VB, then execute your program again.

I hope this helps.

Pardon for the confusion.

I had done what u mention.

U see, when I execute the sample.exe, it displays the form. I need to click the run icon to enter into the runing mode, then I could updating by price through clicking the updating comand button...cmdUpdate.Click()

Instead of display the form when I execute the VB project sample.exe,
I would like it to display in the running VB mode that I could directly
click the cmdUpdate.Click() command button.

Can that be done???

Many Thanks

Great !!! Thanks !!!

That's what I want.

Sorry, again what command could I used to quite to windows mode instead of VB form after running the update.

Am using a quit command button as follows:

Private Sub cmdQuit_Click()
End
End Sub

The purpose of me using this approach is to allow end user directly using the updating program rather than using entering VB program that they may not be familier with.

Many Thanks agin

There isn't a correct way to do it. However, you may be able to use a method simliar to one I used in VB3. I used Appactivate to switch the focus to VB's main window and SendKeys to send the "Alt-Space C" that would close VB.  DO NOT SET THE "WAIT" PARAMETER FOR SENDKEYS TO TRUE! This method is loaded with difficulties, but may help you figure out some way to do it.
