Hi there

I have a form that is opened within a panel on another form.  When the user wants to close the form down they click the X button on the outter form.  However on the inner form I have some code that checks if its ok to close the form that runs as below...

    Private Sub Form_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing

        If check(Me) = False Then
            e.Cancel = True
        Else
            e.Cancel = False
        End If

    End Sub

If I am cancelling out of the form close event on the inner form - how can I stop the outter form closing aswell?

Hope you can help!!!
