hi!
my main application is a dialog based app.i created a modeless dialog box as below
BOOL CMDApp::InitInstance()
{
AfxEnableControlContainer();
#ifdef _AFXDLL
  Enable3Controls();
#else
 Enable3ControlsStatic();
#endif
 CMDDlg *dlg= new CMDDlg;
 dlg->Create();
 m_pMainWnd = dlg;
 return TRUE;
}
i destroyed it using..
void CMDDlg::OnCancel()
{
  CMDDlg::DestroyWindow();
}

now my problem is that when the user presses the ESC key the dialog box vanishes.i want the dialog box to stay.
how can modify this?..what is the reason for the dialog box to vanish even after overriding the OnCancel() function?

As you mentioned ESC invokes OnCancel.

Remove the DestroyWindow from OnCancel - leaving the handler blank.

If you remove the "CMDDlg::DestroyWindow();" from the code, then your dialog should not close when Esc is pressed.

You should use:

void CMDDlg::OnCancel()
{
}

to destroy it instead.

As an alternative - if you wish **just** to disable the Escape key...

BOOL CTestDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
      if (pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN)
      {
            if (pMsg->wParam == VK_ESCAPE)
            {
                  return TRUE;
            }
      }
      return CDialog::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}

Did you include the following in your header file?

virtual BOOL PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg);

If you used ClassWizard to add the function this would be done automagically for you.
