Bind windows form [X] with exit

Hi I have a window form exit function which checks for text change before exiting the application.But I found out the windows [X] button on the top right ignores this and closes the apllication.
I was wondering if i could bind the both together so no matter how the user wants to exit the application it'll prform the text change check.

Try this..

private void Form1_FormClosing(object sender, FormClosingEventArgs e)
{
    if (Box1.Text != Box1Value | Box2.Text != Box2Value)
    {
          MessageBox.Show("cannot close");
          e.Cancel = true;
    }
}
 
private void MainExit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
       this.Close();
}

It will help you..
Change 3 line into your check function and use e.Cancel = true if you don't won't close application.
