Yes it does remain open in the task manager, you have to kill the process to completely close it.

I'm on XP so it's not just a Vista problem

excellent work highboy, it works great

RE: bmp tools V1
The app closes for me fine (on Windows XP x64).

I've got a different issue however:
[Image: 9qww46.jpg]

Got themes disabled on this install, so can't test if using a custom theme fixes the issue.

EDIT: I think I got the close issue.  Click "Create Bmps" then click the X button in the top-right hand corner of this new window.  Everything gets hidden but the app is still running.
The problem would be because you're hiding the previous window when opening the "Create Bmps" window, but not showing it again when closing that window (unless you use the Close button).  Try moving the "show form" action to the Unload event of the 2nd form, then change the Close button just to unload the form.
Alternatively, try using Modal windows instead :P
Hope that helps.

no i don't think so,the app deletes that file "try.bmp" on closing but at that point there isn't anything using it so im not sure what's happening there.i thought i covered my donkey anyway for i made virtual bmps to display in the picture boxes and such.anyway it is still in use looks like so thanks for posting that i will pin point.like after i read your last post i went and tried to make it stay in my processes but to no advail.i did however work on the vshmain editor and have full alpha support as i type.i also made it so you can do all color on front and back wave separately maybe you can test for me ?

i get you 100% man so thanks i will try the unload for i do know some use the x and i do have it set to the close button.it is like this i think
me.hide
form2.show
say to show the second form and to go back its like this
me.close
form1.show
or similar so ya will try and put in the unload sub or take the controls right out so a guy has to use the button because i like the look of the way it reacts Hiding_something

RE: bmp tools V1
Removing the close/minimize icons is an interesting idea, but unfortunately, you can still get around it by Alt+F4.  This is VB .NET right?  I'm sure there'd be a Form_Unload event where you can trigger things to run when the form is closed.  Alternatively, try modal windows - in VB6, it's this (should be similar for .NET)

Visual Basic Code
Form2.Show vbModal, Me

(getting rid of the icons is kinda annoying)

By the way, I'm still getting the black buttons issue.  How are you drawing the buttons?


Sorry for all the criticism - I'm just putting it forward, trying to help.  If you'd prefer me not to bug you, just say so :P

they are in the form unload event but i was going to take out the controls anyway.i always take out the maximize and don't like the look of it gone.i do miss the icon too though lol but so people wouldnt use the x for closing wasn't a way around anything.the whole problem was my work bmp so i just threw it in with the others and it can stay there.i just like to clean up everything when the app closes is all.

as far as the black buttons that's a theme issue for in the build i can check mark to include xp style and always leave it checked.to make sure i put my xp on classic an the result is this

so if you were to enable xp style the problem would go away.

i want to hear anything and everything u can think of as i am still learning and can only look at things from my point of view.thank you for your honest opinion.
