WM_KILLFOCUS should be the message you're looking for...

Hi !!
    Both Jkr and kakamna are right but regarding Modal or Modeless u can
1) Modal dialog --> It does not give the user to click outside until the user clicks on OK button or Cancel or Esc key.
2) Modeless dialog --> It gives the user to click outside the dialog and there as they said u can trap OnKillFocus() and do the end Dialog.
     
   See which can be best suited for u r requirement.

Bye..

kakanma - it is *NOT* proper expert protocol to post answers other users have posted as comments.

Please *unlock* the question and refrain from this behaviour in the future!

Hi,

I found the solution, perhaps I didn´t explain, my problem precisly. I use a Modeless dialog, but Instead of acting WM_KILLFOCUS, I use:
      case WM_ACTIVATE:
            if((BOOL)LOWORD(wParam) == WA_INACTIVE) {
                  DestroyWindow (hWnd);
                  g_nhWnd =0;
                  return TRUE;
            }
