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.

Hi

private void Form1_FormClosing(object sender, FormClosingEventArgs e)
{
    DialogResult res = MessageBox.Show("Are you shure?", "?", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question);
    if (res != DialogResult.Yes)
        e.Cancel = true;
}

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