I have validation in the leave event of a textbox.  one thing that I notice happening is when I click a button to cancel out of the form and the validation isn't correct it won't let me dispose of the form.  The validation stops it.  Really the validation is doing exactly what I want it to but I need to be able to hit the button and basically have that override the validation.  Is there a way to do that in the Leave event?

Try changing this in your leave event:

textBox.CausesValidation = False;

Alternatively you could also set some flag bool EnableValidation=true; and then set it to false then have your validation events check that value before proceeding.

Actually, you need to set CausesValidation=false on your "cancel" button, rather than on the textbox itself.
