Or simple,
Declare a static public variable (integer) in the parent key (name it STATUS for example)
in the childreen windows, handler ClosedEvent to set STATUS variable to a particular value.
For example:
if form1 is closed it will set the STATUS to 1
if form2 is closed it will set the STATUS to 2
if form3 is closed it will set the STATUS to 3
.
.
then, monitor STATUS value by a timer or Background worker thread, when ever it set to a specific value do what you want to do.

in the child window

 public event EventHandler SyncronizationClosedEvent;

        protected void SyncronizationClosed(object sender, EventArgs args)
        {
            if (args != null)
            {
                SyncronizationClosedEvent(sender, args);
            }
        }

 public event EventHandler SyncronizationClosedEvent;

        protected void SyncronizationClosed(object sender, EventArgs args)
        {
            if (args != null)
            {
                SyncronizationClosedEvent(sender, args);
            }
        }

And in the parent:

  syncronization.SyncronizationClosedEvent += new EventHandler(syncronization_SyncronizationClosedEvent);

Its throwing object reference error  in child window's SyncronizationClosed method

 private void Window_Closed(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
            SyncronizationClosed(this, e);

Hi Saed,

Please find the code snippet attached. .Kindly have a look and suggest.
in the child window
 
 public event EventHandler SyncronizationClosedEvent;
 
        protected void SyncronizationClosed(object sender, EventArgs args)
        {
            if (args != null)
            {
                SyncronizationClosedEvent(sender, args);
            }
        }
 
private void Window_Closed(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
            SyncronizationClosed(this, e);
            
        }
 
And in the parent:
 
  syncronization.SyncronizationClosedEvent += new EventHandler(syncronization_SyncronizationClosedEvent);

Open in new window

> private void Window_Closed(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
            SyncronizationClosed(this, e);
           
        }


you passed 'this' to:
protected void SyncronizationClosed(object sender, EventArgs args)
        {
            if (args != null)
            {
                SyncronizationClosedEvent(sender, args);
            }
        }

But are you passing a nonreferenced (closed form) object ??

SaedSalmanCommented:
This event occurs after the form has been closed by the user or by the Close method of the form. To prevent a form from closing, handle the Closing event and set the Cancel property of the CancelEventArgs passed to your event handler to true.

SaedSalmanCommented:
you handled the closed evet, but why not trying to handle the "Closing" instead ?

SaedSalmanCommented:
The Closing event occurs as the form is being closed. When a form is closed, all resources created within the object are released and the form is disposed. If you cancel this event, the form remains opened. To cancel the closure of a form, set the Cancel property of the CancelEventArgs passed to your event handler to true.

"Closed" differs from "Closing"

I tried using Closing event. It still gives me objecty reference error at

protected void SyncronizationClosed(object sender, EventArgs args)
        {
            if (args != null)
            {
                SyncronizationClosedEvent(sender, args);
            }
        }

ChildWIndow  = new Window.
ChildWindow.Closing = ClosingEventHandler
childWindow.Show()

private ClosingEventHandler()
{
     your refresh logic
}
