Hi all,
 
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)
        {
            frmMain=frm;
            this.Show();
 
            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; )
            {
                System.Windows.Forms.Application.DoEvents();
            }
 
            axW.ExecWB(SHDocVw.OLECMDID.OLECMDID_PRINT, SHDocVw.OLECMDEXECOPT.OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, ref empty, ref empty);
 
            Environment.Exit(1);
        }

what happens when you debug with breakpoint at Environment.Exit(1)

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.
