Terminate, minimize (or both) a .NET Compact Framework program ?
Posted on 2007-10-15
I know this is not a new issue and possibly even has a slightly contentious history but I'm pretty new to mobile device development, so ... what is considered the most acceptable/correct/appropriate way to 'close' a .NET CF program ?
OK, I know I can control minimize (X) and shutdown (Ok) behaviour with the main form's minimize property but is it good practice to perhaps offer a user the choice of minimizing or terminating their program ? Leading on from this could anyone offer suggestions as how best to achieve this ? presumably it woulld have to start with an 'exit' button in the program ...
Does anyone typically offer this sort of functionality or is it normally just left to the OS to determine whether it 'feels' it has too many minimized programs running and to start shutting them down ?
my thanks for your consideration
