ASP, VB.net how to properly close a main (form) application

Hi and thanks,

Without going into much detail.

I have a main form and it is being closed by the little X (close) in the upper right corner.

I have noticed that when opening the program it sometimes does not open.

I am guessing that it is because the application is not being closed correctly and that it needs a close button with the recordsets being ended and also a close?  It is mentioned that the MS has a garbage collection that automatically does this?

Thanks

Close the form first, and then dispose of it using Dispose(0 method.

If the form is closed by clicking an x, it should be disposed of without an issue. Perhaps there is a different reason why it does not always open

So you are saying that closing with the X does close the application properly and you don't have to worry about the recordsets?  I guess this is one of the reasons for VB.net.  I have more experience with VBA...

I believe so. But you can also go to form's closing event and put the code there to dispose of the form

Hi Amour22015,

ASP, VB.net?

What about ASP here?

The situation you describe is pretty confusing. Whenever you close your program's startup form, the entire application should quit automatically, including closing all other open forms.
(You are using MDI form??)

Alternatively ou can use , Application.exit()
