I'm using code similar to the "Show Progress Dialog Snippet", which is inside a Try - Catch - End Try block.  When there's an error, the code exits the subroutine, which is what I want it to do, but the progress dialog is still up, and I can't get it to go away, and nothing else can be done until I force ArcMap to shut down.

Does anybody know how to hide the progress dialog when there's an error?  I suppose I could make it a public variable, so the error handler can see it, but that seems pretty roundabout.

Thanks!

You don't have to make the progress dialog public.  All you need to do is declare it outside of the Try/Catch.

Or hide it in finally statement.

It would still have to be declared outside of the Try/Catch.  Variables declared within the Try/Catch do not have scope in the Finally clause.
