Clicking on 'X' on main window to trigger Closing event

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Having a little trouble in trapping the event for clicking the main exit/close button on the ribbon bar... [I want to simulate the office products that close down the focused/primary tab and prompt for whether the file should be saved or not]

I was using the EventManager to trigger the closing event on the window, using the EventHandler Of CancelEventArgs, but I cannot get VB to recognise the closing event. Would appreciate it if there is an Actipro method for this.

Hi Bret,

Sorry but I'm not clear on what you are asking. To programmatically close a Window you should use its Close() method. Any time a Window is told it should close, the Closing event will fire and you can show any confirmation dialogs there. Then just set e.Cancel = true to prevent the Window from closing.
