'Declaration Public Overridable Property DialogResult As DialogResult 'Usage Dim instance As Button Dim value As DialogResult value = instance.DialogResult instance.DialogResult = value
Property ValueType: System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult
One of the DialogResult values. The default value is None.
If the DialogResult for this property is set to anything other than None, and if the parent form was displayed through the ShowDialog method, clicking the button closes the parent form without your having to hook up any events. The form's DialogResult property is then set to the DialogResult of the button when the button is clicked.
For example, to create a "Yes/No/Cancel" dialog box, simply add three buttons and set their DialogResult properties to Yes, No, and Cancel.
