Hi Shawn,
FF_CloseForm( HWND_MyForm, 0 ) is the built-in FF routine that when called with the projects startup form as its first parameter will shut down the app. I use MyForm_WM_DESTROY function to do some tidying up before the app is shut down. The second parameter is the FF_CloseForm return value.
A less elegant way is to call END which doesn't leave you much except END's return value after the app immediately shuts down.
DestroyWindow HWND_MyForm is not recommended.
I hope this helps.
