I am new to visual basic and I was assigned the task of converting some old VB6 code to VB2008.
I have almost everything in the application converted exept this one close routine that closes the applicataion.

What i am going to attach is what the vb6 code was. I ran the conversion tool and it is giving me this error that you see in the code snippet. I need to know what to put in the place of the "cancel" or if that is not the fix I need to know what is. The "Cancel" statement is what it is barking about..
Private Sub frmSpecialMailout_FormClosed(ByVal eventSender As System.Object, ByVal eventArgs As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosed
		If Me.cmdStart.Enabled = False Then
       MsgBox("App is currently running.  Please wait for App to stop.")
'UPGRADE_ISSUE: Event parameter Cancel was not upgraded. 
                      Cancel = 1
		Else
		   Me.Close()
		End If
		
		
	End Sub

Hi lvandevender2008,

You need to use the FormClosing event, because by the time it gets to the FormClosed event it's too late to cancel.

Regards,

Wayne
    Private Sub frmSpecialMailout_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
        If Me.cmdStart.Enabled = False Then
            MsgBox("App is currently running.  Please wait for App to stop.")
            e.Cancel = True
        Else
            Me.Close()
        End If
    End Sub

First thing is that you should not be doing this validation in form_closed event. You should be doing in Form_Closing event

Private Sub frmSpecialMailout_FormClosing(ByVal eventSender As System.Object, ByVal eventArgs As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
                If Me.cmdStart.Enabled = False Then
       MsgBox("App is currently running.  Please wait for App to stop.")
'UPGRADE_ISSUE: Event parameter Cancel was not upgraded.
                      eventArgs.Cancel = true
                Else
                   Me.Close()
                End If
               
               
        End Sub
