Hi,

I created a form, with a button. When I click a button, new window opens (popup window). I would like to close this window, but not to close whole form. I found WHEN-WINDOW-CLOSED trigger with (set_window_property) on form level, but it doesn't work. Because it just shortly blinks (as the window is closed) and bring that window up again. I tried to use also a exit_form command, but it doesn't work, because it closes whole form, and I just want to close popup window.

Just do a 'go_item' to an item on the other canvas / window and the current one will be replaced by the previous one.

What is this "popup window"? How do you display it? Is it a new form, or - possibly - a stacked canvas? Did you check use of the HIDE_VIEW built-in?

It is like this:

I have one canvas with the button on it. From that canvas (canvas1) I jump to another canvas (canvas2, which I call popup window) using a button. When that new canvas opens it has in its titlebar (right corner) three (I don't know how to call it) minimize, maximaze and exit buttons just like in every Microsoft progran. I want to close canvas2 using exit - X button on title bar and to return to canvas1.

Look at the example listed in the help facility for 'when-window-closed'.
