VS 2005, Trying to close a form within addhandler of timer function, but does not work. Code:

Public Class frmMain

    Dim aTimer As New System.Timers.Timer()

    Public Sub btnGo_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click

        Dim str As String
        Dim str2 As String

        AddHandler aTimer.Elapsed, AddressOf OnTimedEvent

        aTimer.Interval = 5000
        aTimer.Enabled = True

        str = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\BINN\SQL Server Enterprise Manager.MSC"
        str2 = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe /s  """ + str + """"

        frmApp1.Show()
        Process.Start("outlook.exe")

     
        Me.Hide()
        'Terminate()
        'closewindows()

    End Sub

    Private Sub Terminate()
        Dim pk As Process()
        pk = Process.GetProcessesByName("OnePoint")
        For Each p As Process In pk

            p.Kill()

        Next

    End Sub

   'Private Sub OnTimedEvent(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As Timers.ElapsedEventArgs)

    frmapp1.hide()

    End Sub

End Class

Your OnTimedEvent is hiding the frmapp1 and not closing it.

It is actually not hiding or closing the form, it stays on the screen

Hi mwalsh2000;

The reason it was not working was do to the fact that you were using the default reference to the forms collections new in VS 2005 which does not seem to work like if you have created an instance of the form. Once that was fixed the next problem was that you was using a System.Timer which when you attempt to modify a control such as a form you throw a cross threading error so I changed it to the System.Windows.Form.Timer and now it should work OK. Now that said if you hide the main form without a way to make it visible again you will not be able to terminate the program.

Public Class frmMain

    Dim aTimer As New System.Windows.Forms.Timer
    Dim fapp1 As frmapp1

    Public Sub btnGo_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click

        Dim str As String
        Dim str2 As String

        AddHandler aTimer.Tick, AddressOf OnTimedEvent

        aTimer.Interval = 5000
        aTimer.Enabled = True

        str = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\BINN\SQL Server Enterprise Manager.MSC"
        str2 = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe /s  """ + str + """"

        fapp1 = New frmapp1
        fapp1.Show()
        Process.Start("outlook.exe")


        Me.Hide()
        'Terminate()
        'closewindows()

    End Sub

    Private Sub Terminate()
        Dim pk As Process()
        pk = Process.GetProcessesByName("OnePoint")
        For Each p As Process In pk

            p.Kill()

        Next

    End Sub

    Private Sub OnTimedEvent(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        fapp1.Hide()

    End Sub

End Class
