I have a form I use to login as a different user - if I click cancel it closes the entire application and not just the form
the form is called from a usercontrol
Forms.Login li = new Forms.Login(); 
public void ShowLogin(string title)
        {
            li.title = title;
            li.ShowDialog();
        }

Open in new window

in the code for the cancel button I am using
((Form)this.TopLevelControl).Close();

Open in new window

like I said - after cancel is selected the entire app closes
what am I not seeing here

Is this what you want?
((Form)this.Parent).Close();
