How to disable default OnOK and OnCancel in MFC Dialog

I'm a Beginner of MFC Programming. I opened new MFC (Single Dialog) that dialog will close when I press Esc/Enter Keys( Note: I Deleted the default OK and Cancel Buttons from the Dialog). Some of my friends are saying that it is due to default OnOK and OnCancel Functions in MFC(CDialog Based classes). If it is the case how can I over come that function so,that My dialog should not close for Esc/Enter key strokes

Note: Plese Explain with Appropriate coding

Provide definitions for the OnOk() and OnCancel virtual functions and then use EndDialog( nID ) to close your dialog when you need to.

void CMyDialog::OnOK()
{
}

void CMyDialog::OnCancel()
{
}

I thought that was what you were trying to achieve... I'll get back to you with a simple solution that allows the dialog to close using the system menu and taskbar but will not close using the esc or enter keys.

Modify your OnSysCommand() member function so it looks like the following:


void CMyDialog::OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam)
{
   if ((nID & 0xFFF0) == IDM_ABOUTBOX)
   {
      CAboutDlg dlgAbout;
      dlgAbout.DoModal();
   }
   else
   {
      switch(nID) {
      case SC_CLOSE:
         EndDialog(IDCANCEL);
         break;
      default:
         CDialog::OnSysCommand(nID, lParam);
      }
     
   }
}

If you don't have a OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam) function do the following:

1)add afx_msg void OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam); to your header file right after //}}AFX_MSG

2)add ON_WM_SYSCOMMAND() right after      //}}AFX_MSG_MAP in your cpp file

3) add the folowing code for your OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam) in the cpp file:

void CMyDialog::OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam)
{
      switch(nID) {
      case SC_CLOSE:
         EndDialog(IDCANCEL);
         break;
      default:
         CDialog::OnSysCommand(nID, lParam);
      }
     
}
