in an event driven system, nothing happens "immediatly", do you want to give the impression it does?

Use a global boolean variable, for instance called RunApplication, and declare it publically in the main unit.
Then, in the formCreate, you set the variable to False if the application shouldn't be launched at all. Finally, somewhere in the project source (.dpr file), add the lines:

if not RunApplication then begin
  application.terminate;
  exit;
end;

The lines should be added somewhere after the Application.CreateForm statements and (important) before
the Application.Run statement!

Another solution is to move the code that does the checking from the formCreate method to the project source...

Hope this helps!

It's much easier! Simply call "ExitProcess(0)". This works always perfectly, regardless where you put it in your code...

P.S: Halt works in some cases and in some not, I don't remember where it didn't work. Anyway, it doesn't matter, ExitProcess works always.

Thanks for all you answers. calling ExitProcess(0) works great for me.
Now, how do I give the points to Madshi?

calling ExitProcess(0) works better for me since I have to call it from different places in my code.
