I'm sure this is completely stupid, but I have a windows application project in .net 2005, startup form is set to my one and only form.
Whenever I click the X to close it, the project continues to run and I have to hit the stop button.
This is probaby not the behavior 'after' I've deployed it, but I'd like it to work as expected while I'm testing...any ideas?

Have you got something running or have you referenced something in that form ?

I create 4-6 controls dynamically - could it be because I'm not disposing of them?

If theres something left in memory, it'll carry on running.
Try disposing, if that doesn't work , pin it down by commenting out parts of your code to see whats stopping it from unloading.

You know though - looking at the code, I actually had to put in a me.show in my form load for the form to even appear...

Something's screwy here... :(

I tried this:

    Private Sub frmQuiz_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
        For Each ctl As Control In Controls
            ctl.Dispose()
        Next
    End Sub

But still no luck...or do I need to set each to Nothing?

No, sounds like something else.
What are you running in your form on startup ? this could be linked with your other problem.

Remove the code that runs on your load event, then see if your labels appear and your form shuts down.

Oh good and wise Kinger247 - the form now loads properly... :)
I moved my call to the Shown event.
But it still doesn't close properly.

I do have a oledb connection - tried closing that as well in my formclosing, but still no good...

I think the loop from the other thread is the reason.

If you need a loop, put all the code from LoadQuestion into a timer and start the timer from the form load event.

Can't get my head around that one.
