Cancelling a Window During Load

Cancelling a Window During Load

Question:
Supposing that in Form_Load I determine that I wish to cancel the load of the form (so that nothing is in memory and nothing is displayed to the user). How can I do this? An Unload Me does not work, since the form has not yet been loaded.

Answer:
The easiest thing to do would be to set a constant in the Form_Load event that would determine whether or not the window could continue. That way, whenever the Form_Activate event fires immediately after the Form_Load, it can unload the window if necessary.
