How to: Handle Application Events (Visual Basic)
Visual Basic provides several application-level events including Startup, Shutdown, StartupNextInstance, and UnhandledException. Code for these events is stored in the ApplicationEvents.vb partial class file, which is hidden by default. You can access the Code Editor window for application events from the Application page of the Project Designer.
To access code for application events
Select a project in Solution Explorer, and then on the Project menu, click Properties.
