How do I truly close a Pocket PC application? RRS feed

    As many of you may know, Windows Mobile 2003 Pocket PC does not actually close applications when you hit the little 'X' in the corner. It basically just minimizes it. I am working on an application that requires a user to login (via a wireless network) whenever they start up the program. The problem that exists, is that if a user logs in and uses the system and then thinks that they closed it; another user could come along and start the program right up where the previous one left off under the previous user's username! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    For a regular "Windows" application on a pocket PC, set the MinimizeBox property of the form FALSE, and rather than an X in the upper right hand corner of the form, you will get an OK that will really close the application.
