Remove a ToolStripStatusLabel when a form is closed

Posted on 2009-04-10

During run time, ToolStripStatusLabels are added to my MDI parent statusstrip.
These labels display child forms that are currently open.
When the user closes one of the child forms, I need to remove the label associated with the form.  
There may be multiple instances of a form, but each form has a unique number appended to it's name and text properties.
How do I delete the ToolStripStatusLabel?
Please provide a code example. My IE crashes when I click on links.
Thanks

Hi,
 
On the Form FormClosing event you can do this:

        ' In this example Form1 is the MDI form
        For Each t As ToolStripLabel In My.Forms.Form1.StatusStrip1.Items
            If t.Text = Me.Text Then
                My.Forms.Form1.StatusStrip1.Items.Remove(t)
                Exit For
            End If
        Next

Hi jpaulino,

I was hoping you would respond to this question.
I did figure out how to remove labels when a user closes a form.  
I added at form level the ts declaration.  
I also changed the name of the form in the load event to make sure that it closed the right instance.
me.name = me.name & x  
an public variable that numbers forms of the same type.
It works great!

I learned a lot about .Net with your help.  I now know about handlers.

Thank you so much for all your help... You are great!!!
