I have frmMain, which opens frmEvent from within a timer (f.Show not ShowDialog).

When I close the instance of frmEvent by clicking on the X in the ControlBox, I want to update a database.
I can't find any kind of close event in frmEvents memebers.

How do I do this?

Hi you should be able to use the Form.Closed event for the form.  If you are unable to add it through the GUI you can use the delegation given below.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.form.closed.aspx

or with 2005 (.NET 2.0) you would be better using the formclosed event for the form

If you are looking to close a form could you not just use this.Close(); upon an event?

I have tried the following and can't spot what I am doing wrong.  I also tried the "closing" rather than "closed" event.

After build, "Closed" is underlined saying "never used"
public event EventHandler Closed;

This code never executes:
private void frmEvent_Closed(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
     MessageBox.Show("Here");
     <----------------------------------------this is where I would like to update a database
}

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I found that I had to add to initialize components:

//
//      form closing
//
this.Closing += new System.ComponentModel.CancelEventHandler(this.frmEvent_Closing);
