to start , i am pretty new at the c# windows app world

when my app starts in the constructor of the form1 i check to see if two variables are populated)
(uname and password)

the problem i am having is if the user closes the login form or cancels i need the app to go away
i thought in the else of the dialogresult i could do
                   System.Windows.Forms.Application.Exit();

but that does not work.

looks for suggestions on the best way to do this?
thanks




       public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            if (username == null || passwd == null)
            {
                DialogResult dr = new DialogResult();
                LoginForm login = new LoginForm();
                dr = login.ShowDialog();
                if (dr == DialogResult.OK)
                {
                }
                else
                {
                }
            }
        }

Is the following what you want?  Closing the main form of an app will close the app automatically.


 public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            if (username == null || passwd == null)
            {
                DialogResult dr = new DialogResult();
                LoginForm login = new LoginForm();
                dr = login.ShowDialog();
                if (dr == DialogResult.OK)
                {
                }
                else
                {
this.Close();  //Close this form
                }
            }
        }

i tried the this.Close();
it threw the exception  ::


System.InvalidOperationException was unhandled
  Message=Starting a second message loop on a single thread is not a valid operation. Use Form.ShowDialog instead.
  Source=System.Windows.Forms

If you are going to use this you must remember that any code in the block after this.close(); will still execute, so you will need to put a return; afterwards to leave this block of code immiediatly:

public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            if (username == null || passwd == null)
            {
                DialogResult dr = new DialogResult();
                LoginForm login = new LoginForm();
                dr = login.ShowDialog();
                if (dr == DialogResult.OK)
                {
                }
                else
                {
this.Close();  //Close this form
return; //Break out of this code block and force the close to happen immiediatly
                }
            }
        }
