I have a window, that has a close button, I would like to make it close. So I have the method:

    private void m_CloseButton_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
      components.Dispose();
    }

is Components.Dispose();

The easiest way or is there another way?

You can use two methods. You should use the close method on the current form object. To call this, just type this.close(); The close method will displose all resources used by the form.

You can also use Application.Exit(); but in that case the form_Close and form_Closing events are NOT triggered so be carefull with this as code won't be executed in these events.
