I want to prevent closing my delphi application by ALT-F4. I think that I have to write an Windowsmessage event handler, but how ?
Can i use the WM_CLOSE message to detect this ?

Hi,
Do the following simple steps:

1. Set Form's proterty KeyPreview := True;

2. Implement this simple event handler:

   procedure TForm1.FormKeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
     Shift: TShiftState);
   begin
     if ( ( Key = VK_F4 ) and ( ssAlt in Shift ) )
     then Key := 0;
   end;

Note: this doesn't prevent the window from closing with the system menu or the close button.
