Hello again guys, this time I need help with the FormClosing() Event in the Picture Viewing application I made. I wanted it to prompt the user before closing the form (if he had any unsaved changes) and I did it without help. But, the bad thing is, when someone saves a picture, the prompt will appear again! The code that I used in order to get this half-working is below. BTW, thanks in advance.

Private Sub ChildForm_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
        If picShowPicture.Image IsNot Nothing Then
            If MessageBox.Show("You've got unsaved changes. Are you sure you wish to proceed in closing this file without saving?", "Gavo® Ultimate Suite 2010", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Warning, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button2) = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.No Then
                e.Cancel = True
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Add a member to the class to indicate it has been saved:

Public Class frmSave
	Dim saved As Boolean = False

	Private Sub ButtonSave_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ButtonSave.Click
		saved = True
		Me.Close()
	End Sub

	Private Sub ButtonCancel_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ButtonCancel.Click
		Me.Close()
	End Sub

	Private Sub frmSave_FormClosing(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles MyBase.FormClosing
		If (saved = False) And (picShowPicture.Image IsNot Nothing) Then
			If MessageBox.Show("You've got unsaved changes. Are you sure you wish to proceed in closing this file without saving?", "Gavo® Ultimate Suite 2010", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Warning, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button2) = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.No Then
				e.Cancel = True
			End If
		End If
	End Sub

End Class

Thank you man, but I don't quite understand what to do. Can you be more specific? Sorry, I don't know very much about VB.NET.

first u have to think of a way to determine whether data is saved or not.
thn this factor can be used as a condition to determine if u want to run the above code or not.

Private Sub ChildForm_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
if DeterminingFactor = true then
        If picShowPicture.Image IsNot Nothing Then
            If MessageBox.Show("You've got unsaved changes. Are you sure you wish to proceed in closing this file without saving?", "Gavo® Ultimate Suite 2010", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Warning, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button2) = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.No Then
                e.Cancel = True
            End If
        End If
end if
    End Sub

Even though I used sknake's method, I want to thank you both guys for helping me out. Is there anything I can do for you?

Just mark the thread as solved, which you already did :)

Post back if you have any questions and good luck!
