Pressing ESC is the same as clicking the Cancel button in a modal or modeless dialog box. You can override CDialog::OnCancel() function.


CDialog::OnCancel

virtual void OnCancel( );
 
Remarks
The framework calls this member function when the user clicks the Cancel button or presses the ESC key in a modal or modeless dialog box.
Override this member function to perform Cancel button action. The default simply terminates a modal dialog box by calling EndDialog and causing DoModal to return IDCANCEL.
If you implement the Cancel button in a modeless dialog box, you must override the OnCancel member function and call DestroyWindow from within it. Don’t call the base-class member function, because it calls EndDialog, which will make the dialog box invisible but not destroy it.
