I have a VB.NET app with many forms, for this example I will use Form1

When the user clicks the red X (top right) I want to fire an event that pops up a message asking the user if they want to save, if yes, then fire SubA, if no then fire SubB.

Thanks

I believe you'll want to do this in the FormClosing event...

Private Sub Form1_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
  Dim strResp As String=MessageBox.Show("Do you want to save?","Save changes?", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo)
  If strResp=vbYes Then SubA
  SubB
End Sub
