Windows 7: Difference between Cancel and Close?

Difference between Cancel and Close?

What's the diffrence between these two buttons on windows applications, do they both use the same code? They do the same thing but I was wondering if the coding is different?

can you show us an example please?

i would say that 'cancel' cancels any changes you've made, but keeps the window open, whereas 'close' doesn't.

probably.

I'd go wsith Mickey on this one.

I would imagine that Cancel means cancelling any changes you've made, but keeps the program/file/document open, whereas Close will close the window. In the latter case I've no doubt you would have to Apply or OK your changes before you close the window with your changes saved.
