Hi

How do I set the exitcode of my delphi application when it terminates.
I know I could use halt(exitcode), but halt is only used with abnormal termination.

If I call ExitProcess(exitcode) will my delphi application be shutdown properly ?

There's ExitCode variable declared in System unit for that purpose. Details in the help.

sorentop,

You sould exit your app using Form1.Close (assume Form1 is
your main form). This is the *proper* way of doing it.
Alternative is using Application.Terminate. This is also
quite safe, but, in this case OnCloseQuery and OnClose will
not fire. In both cases OnDestroy event will fire.
Before you call Form1.Close or Application.Terminate, set
System.ExitCode var to desired value.

Example (Exit app with exit code):
----------------------------------------------------------

  // The proper way:
  System.ExitCode:=1; Form1.Close;

or

  // Also OK, but read above remarks:
  System.ExitCode:=1; Application.Terminate;

Not always. It stops the process without calling unit
finalization , and leaves many libraries and resource
locks unreleased. In most cases, you should avoid it.
