An application typically returns an exit code to the operating system to indicate whether an application exited successfully or not. An application exit code value of 0 (the default) is commonly used to indicate success. However, you are free to return exit code values that are appropriate to your application.
You can specify an exit code by handling the Exit event and setting ApplicationExitCode with an appropriate value.
You can also specify an exit code by calling Shutdown method. If you do, the value of ApplicationExitCode is the value of the exit code that you pass to Shutdown.
