I am using textbox for input and am using regular expressions to test the input.

How do I exit from the expression if I click an exit button to exit the win form.

What I have tried:

I have not tried anything yet because I haven't found a solution by asking the question in forums.

What do you mean by 'exiting a regular expression'?

What are you talking about? A RegEx is never "running" beyond the one statement to do a match so there's nothing to exit.

You're going to have to explain this a bit more and show your code to get any kind of an answer on this.

I'm guessing somewhat here, but I suspect you're using the Validating[^] event to validate your textbox, and that's preventing you from clicking on your "exit" button unless you've entered a valid value.

If that's the case, you need to set the CausesValidation[^] property on the "exit" button to False. That way, the Validating event will not fire when the button is clicked.

I am using the Leave event. I see I need to change it to a Validating event..
