The following event is not firing for some reason "Form1_Closing(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e)"  I'm using VS.NET 2005 and C#.   Can someone please tell me why this event isn't working??

THanks

Perhaps the event handler is not actually wired to the event.  Look at the properties of the form in design view.  Click the yellow lightening-bolt icon in the properties grid and see if your function is listed under the handler for Closing.  If not select it from the drop-down list.

sorry - I clicked the lightning bolt and I don't see anything that indicates something is happening for closing.  I see resizing, validating etc. but nothing for closing

My Fault I didn't have the entire Dialog selected.  You were right the event wasn't wired up.  Thanks so much!!
