What event fires when...

What event fires when mouse moves over X to close the form.

I guess X is part of the form because I tried using on MouseLeave but it didn't work.

Background:

I have few text boxes on a form to accept user input. I also have a button "Default Values" to populate these text boxes if the user chooses to use it.

Because the text boxes have Validated events and doesn't allow blank entries, I have:

    Private Sub butDefaultValues_MouseEnter(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles butDefaultValues.MouseEnter

        'to pacify _Validated to use "Default Values" button
        bolUsingDefault = True

    End Sub

 Private Sub butDefaultValues_MouseLeave(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles butDefaultValues.MouseLeave

        'to keep _Validated active on leaving butDefaultValues
        bolUsingDefault = False

    End Sub

This means, as soon as the mouse enters "Default Values" button, the flag bolUsingDefault is set True thus using:

Private Sub txtVinNumber_Validated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles txtVinNumber.Validated

        If bolUsingDefault = True Then Exit Sub
.
.

is bypassed.

Question is how I can implement a similar technique when the user moves the mouse to close the form without _Validated event firing.

Thank you.

You can do:
Public Class Form1
 
    Protected Overrides Sub WndProc(ByRef m As System.Windows.Forms.Message)
        Const SC_CLOSE As Integer = &HF060&
        Const WM_SYSCOMMAND As Integer = &H112
 
        Select Case m.Msg
            Case WM_SYSCOMMAND
                Select Case m.WParam.ToInt32
                    Case SC_CLOSE
                        bolUsingDefault = True
 
                End Select
 
        End Select
 
        MyBase.WndProc(m)
    End Sub

End Class
