Good morning all!!!

I have a form (frmDialogForm) that I'm opening from a parent form (frmParent). I'm open frmDialogForm as a dialogbox the the user inputs some information. The the user clicks the "Save" button which has DialogResult.OK.

What I want to do is validated the information when the you clicks the Save button and if the information inputted by the user is not valid then frmDialogForm does not close.

Subscribe the FormClosing event inside your frmDialogForm and set 'FormClosingEventArgs' value say e.Cancel = true; which does not close your form.

what you can do here keep a boolean member variable inside the frmDialogForm and set this value true/false based on your validation to keep the form open.
