I have an issue with a winform. I would like to exit the application using Environment.Exit(1). However when I use this approach the code before the exit code does not execute. Any thoughts? Here is my code. Just as a note, the code runs successfully if I leave out the Environement.Exit(1) code.
public void ShowForm(System.Windows.Forms.Form frm, string id)
object empty = null;
axW.Navigate("http://localhost:2124/Studiebogservice/_Ankomst/LabelPrint.aspx?id=" + id, ref empty, ref empty, ref empty, ref empty);
for (; axW.ReadyState != SHDocVw.tagREADYSTATE.READYSTATE_COMPLETE; )
axW.ExecWB(SHDocVw.OLECMDID.OLECMDID_PRINT, SHDocVw.OLECMDEXECOPT.OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, ref empty, ref empty);
It probably does get cued to run, and the commands for it are prepared - but as an asynchronous process. Then along comes Environment.Exit and terminates all processes associated with the application, including those you have just prepared to print.
Environment.Exit is a big step - it is an abnormal termination, and it shuts everything down, without waiting for them to finish, save data, or do anything else.
