Hello,

I used a fixedDialog as a form's borderstyle. The min. and max. buttons is disappear already, but I don't want the close button that appear in the top right hand corner, also the close option appear in the system menu.
How can I disable them ? such that the user cannot close the dailog box by pressing the close button or the close option in the menu.
Please help!

Regards,

Raymond

Try this.

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Unload Me
End Sub

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

The good thing u can do is to make the control box false and u can even embose another control on the top right of the form and u can operate with that also if u don't want to use the system close option. And, if u make false the control box the system close option also will not appear. u try this if not give me ur descriptive question so that i can answer u for the specific problem

Vbdream,
It is not good idea to mark your solution as answer. You should mark it as comments. If Rng will find your solution the best solution for this situation, he/she will ask you to mark it as answer, or he/she can accept your solution as answer.

DreamVB Writes:

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
 Cancel = 1
 
End Sub

If you need to close the program just press Alt-Ctrl-Delete a couple of times, right?.. 'cause that baby is NEVER going to unload on its own.. <smile>.

Checkout Ruchi's Query_Unload and UnLoadMode test above.
