How do I add a startup event to my App ?

I typically do my automated programs by running Subroutines from the Form load and then just make the form hiddent and do application.exit after subs have run.

Is a startup event a better way to do this?  If so, how do I creat this event in my main class?

thanks,

Click on Project --> Properties.
Make sure the "Enable Application Framework" CheckBox is CHECKED.
In the Application Tab, Click on the "View Application Events" Button in the BOTTOM RIGHT.
Across the top of the IDE, change the two dropdowns:
    Left DropDown: "MyApplication" --> "(MyApplication Events)"
    Right DropDown: "(Declarations)" --> "Startup"

You should have this now:

Namespace My
 
    ' The following events are availble for MyApplication:
    ' 
    ' Startup: Raised when the application starts, before the startup form is created.
    ' Shutdown: Raised after all application forms are closed.  This event is not raised if the application terminates abnormally.
    ' UnhandledException: Raised if the application encounters an unhandled exception.
    ' StartupNextInstance: Raised when launching a single-instance application and the application is already active. 
    ' NetworkAvailabilityChanged: Raised when the network connection is connected or disconnected.
    Partial Friend Class MyApplication
 
        Private Sub MyApplication_Startup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.VisualBasic.ApplicationServices.StartupEventArgs) Handles Me.Startup
 
            ' ...do your code in here...
 
 
            e.Cancel = True ' make the application close WITHOUT showing any Forms...
 
        End Sub
    End Class
 
End Namespace
