Manually closes a Window.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
A Window can be closed using one of several, well-known, system-provided mechanisms located in its title bar, including:
System menu | Close.
A Window can also be closed using one of several well-known mechanisms within the client area that are provided by developers, including:
File | Exit on a main window.
File | Close or a Close button on a child window.
These mechanisms require you to explicitly call to close a window.
If a window, opened by calling ShowDialog, and with a Button with its IsCancel property set to true, will automatically close when the button is either clicked, or ESC is pressed. If the window was opened using Show, however, must be explicitly called, such as from Click event handler for the Button.
The Closed event is raised.
Unmanaged resources created by the Window are disposed.
This method cannot be called when a window is hosted in a browser.
The following example shows a File | Exit menu being handled to explicitly call .
Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
