Remove a ToolStripStatusLabel when a form is closed

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!!!
