Application.Shutdown Method

Shuts down an application.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public function Shutdown()
You cannot use methods in XAML.

When Shutdown is called, an application stops running. You can handle the Exit event to detect when an application is about to stop running, to perform any appropriate processing.

Shutdown is implicitly called by Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) in the following situations:

Calling Shutdown explicitly causes an application to shut down, regardless of the ShutdownMode setting. However, if ShutdownMode is set to OnExplicitShutdown, you must call Shutdown to shut down an application.

Important noteImportant Note:

When Shutdown is called, the application will shut down irrespective of whether the Closing event of any open windows is canceled.

This method can be called only from the thread that created the Application object.

The Application Shutdown Sample shows both implicit and explicit use of Shutdown to shut down an application, and how the Closing event of a Windows is ignored.
