# To subscribers of the xforms list from "Rouben Rostamian" <email@example.com> :
Dear XForms users:
I am seeking clarification regarding the fl_set_form_atclose() function.
I have an application which displays several forms simultaneously.
If I close one of the forms via my window manager's "Close" or
"Delete" buttons, I want the remaining forms to stay up and continue
Fortunately, XForms provides the fl_set_form_atclose() function
exactly for this purpose. The manual says (p. 38 of version 0.89.5):
[ if fl_set_form_atclose() returns FL_OK ] the form
is closed, but the application does not terminate.
What I want to know is the precise meaning of "the form is closed".
Does it mean the form is hidden, as in fl_hide_form(), or does it
mean that the form is obliterated, as in fl_free_form()?
Equivalently, if the user asks to re-display that form, is a plain
fl_show_form() sufficient, or do I need to recreate the form from
