public void Shutdown(
	int exitCode
)

Parameters

exitCode
Type: System.Int32
An integer exit code for an application. The default exit code is 0.

You can handle the Exit event to set an exit code. However, if you explicitly call Shutdown, and you handle Exit only to set an exit code, you can call Shutdown instead.
