Just write a message handler for WM_QUERYENDSESSION.

The WM_QUERYENDSESSION message is sent when the user chooses to end the Windows session or when an application calls the ExitWindows function. If any application returns zero, the Windows session is not ended. Windows stops sending WM_QUERYENDSESSION messages as soon as one application returns zero.

Example:

(this goes on the form's Private section):

  procedure WMQueryEndSession (var Message: TMessage); message WM_QUERYENDSESSION ;

Then simply write the code for the prototype above. The procedure will be called in the events described by the text above

You do not need to seet msg to 1 or 0.
If user click, Start-Shutdown, then
WM_QUERYENDSESSION will be invoked.
So, just put your routines to the procedure WMQueryEndSession (var Message: TMessage); message WM_QUERYENDSESSION ;

Hope it will help,

Daniel

I think this should be it:


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
  private
    { Private declarations }
    procedure WMQueryEndSession (var Message: TMessage); message WM_QUERYENDSESSION ;
    procedure WMEndSession (var Message: TMessage); message WM_ENDSESSION ;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

{ TForm1 }

procedure TForm1.WMQueryEndSession(var Message: TMessage);
begin
  if MessageDlg('WM_QUERYENDSESSION', mtConfirmation, mbOKCancel, 0) = mrOk then
    Message.Result := Integer(true)
  else
    Message.Result := Integer(false);
end;

procedure TForm1.WMEndSession(var Message: TMessage);
begin
  if BOOL(Message.WParam) = true then
    Close;
end;

end.
