An application raises the Shutdown event before it exits. This allows you to control how the application closes its resources. This event is part of the Visual Basic Application model. For more information, see Overview of the Visual Basic Application Model.

The code for the Shutdown event handler is stored in the ApplicationEvents.vb file, which is hidden by default.
