Dialog form closes when Cancel button is pressed

I am displaying a modal form which a user can edit information in text boxes. If they click the Cancel button I am doing a ds.tables(0).rejectchanges which appears to be firing a close-form event... why???
Also, it does not reset the value in the binded text box to the original value like other forms do. Why? I do a ds.tables(0).rows(0).canceledit and then ds.tables(0).rejectchanges and would expect the original value to re-appear in the text box but it does not.... why??

Thanks
Mike

A dataset has absolutely nothing to do with a form staying open or closed.  

The AcceptButton property is similar to CancelButton, but returns DialogResult.Ok instead of DialogResult.Cancel.  The only way the form will close is if you click one of those buttons, click the X in the top right of the form, or call the form's .Close(), .Dispose(), or .Hide() methods.  

It might be possible for another program to somehow slip a WM_CLOSE or WM_TERMINATE message into the window's event loop, but the .Net framework will only do that via the methods I just described.

When you look at the properties for the form you'll see a property named "CancelButton" that accepts a Button.  If you click the button set there then the form will close and return DialogResult.Cancel.  Clear that property and the form won't close anymore.

I do not have the Cancel button set as the CancelButton property for the form. I have a totally different button called ExitButton that is set to the CancelButton property of the form... so please try again.

ok., I changed the DialogResult property to None on all 3 buttons, (Update, Cancel, Exit) and it now behaves normally.

As for the rejectchanges not resetting the value to original value... I removed the binding format of "C"urrency from these text boxes and it also now behaves normally, just no currency formatting.

In all I am fine now. Thanks for your help any ways.
