Determining Exit Method

Determining Exit Method

Question:
I am currently experimenting with VB 3.0. In version 1.0 common dialogs provided the information about which button was used to exit from the dialog. I want to know how can I know how a common dialog object was exited? Is the answersuggested somehow in any variable?

Answer:
The assumption that is made when you use the CommonDialog is that the user will do something in the window and press the OK button. If the user does press the Cancel button, setting the CancelError property to “True” will cause the common dialog to generate a trappable error. Other than that, there are not any other ways to close the window.
