Hi guys i am trying to catch the close event(press the X button) on a window form.
I try this

private void Form1_Closing(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e)
        {
      // Display a MsgBox asking the user to save changes or abort.
      if(MessageBox.Show("Do you want to save changes to your text?", "My Application",
         MessageBoxButtons.YesNo) ==  DialogResult.Yes)
      {
         // Cancel the Closing event from closing the form.
         e.Cancel = true;
         // Call method to save file...
      }
   
        }

But do nothing.
Any ideas??? What i am doing wrong

>But do nothing.
I think FormClosing event is not handled properly. Add handler for Form's FormClosing event. (Look at property windows).

You can try this, may it help you......
On form closing event write this code

DialogResult ret;
                    ret = MessageBox.Show("Are you want to Exit!", "Exit".ToUpper(), MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Information, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1);
                    if (ret == DialogResult.Yes)
                    {
                        Application.Exit();
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        return;
                    }

When you say nothing happens, does the code in the event handler not work or does it not run?
Have you checked that the event handler has been bound to the event?
Chcek out my tutorial, let me know if it clears things up :)

Worked!!!
I select my form then press the lighting bold on the properties window, find the ClosingEvent , double click and open the code editor window with the block of closing event... EXCELLENT TUTORIAL 10/10 ;)
And again thank you!!!

No problem, just glad it helped. Made it worth the few minutes to write it :) You'd be suprised how many people write the event handlers without binding them to an event.
