Try this - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1846109/disable-submit-with-key-press-event

It's for the enter key but you just need the code generated by ALT F4 to change it

Javascript code

    function disableEnterKey(e)     {          var key;            if(window.event)               key = window.event.keyCode;     //IE          else               key = e.which;     //firefox           if(key == 13)               return false;          else               return true;     } KeyCode 13 stands for the enter key.

Hi, try this code

protected override void OnClosing(CancelEventArgs e)
{
System.Diagnostics.StackTrace O = new System.Diagnostics.StackTrace(true);
System.Diagnostics.StackFrame F = O.GetFrame(7);
if(F.GetMethod().Name == "DefWndProc")
e.Cancel = true; // user ended the application (ALT-F4, clicking the
corner X etc)
}

Try using FormClosing Event:

private void Form1_FormClosing(object sender, FormClosingEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
}

Set the Form's KeyPreview to true, and handle the form's KeyDown event. If the KeyPressed is F$ and the ALT key is currently down, then cancel the KeyPress by telling .Net we handled the key press, so it doesn't need to.  This will leave the user still able to close the form with the mouse, but not by pressing ALT-F4.

public partial class Form1 : Form
{
	public Form1()
	{
		InitializeComponent();
	}

	private void Form1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
	{
		if (e.Alt && e.KeyCode == Keys.F4)
			e.Handled = true;
	}

		

}
