terminating application

Hi guys,


I would like to know how to terminate a MFC application. The problem is that I want to terminate it when the main window is isn´t created (at start). In fact the point of interest is in the InitialUpdate method of my View. I´ve already tried "AfxGetMainWnd()->SendMessage(WM_CLOSE)" but this gave me AV maybe because there is no main wnd at this time.

Thank you

Nick

Try this instead

AfxPostQuitMessage(0) ;

this will free any OLE libraries, then post a WM_QUIT message.

WM_QUIT will cause the MFC message loop to stop looping and thus terminate the app.

Be aware this is an undocumented MFC function (at least it is not in my versions of the docs), so may change in future MFC versions.  However given the number of calls to it peppered over MFC sources, you are probably pretty safe to call this.

You want your application to terminate gracefully?

Why is it your view that checks for normal/abnormal?  If you could place your check somewhere else it might be a lot easier to terminate the application. This is due to the way/order that the doc/view/frame are created.
