If You mean programatically - by Your aplication.
This would work.

  private
    bCloseType: boolean;


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  bCloseType := False;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormActivate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  bCloseType := False;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  bCloseType := True;
  Close;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
begin
  if bCloseType then
    Application.MessageBox('Closed programatically','Info',MB_OK);
end;

hakanfa,

var
  bClose: Boolean = False;


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 bClose: True;
end;


procedure TForm1.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
begin
 if bClose then
  ShowMessage('Closed by button!')
 else
  ShowMessage('Closed by Form!');
end;



If you are trying to prevent a user from closing the form from the Title Bar buttons, then you could do this:


var
  Form1: TForm1;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 bClose: True;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCloseQuery(Sender: TObject; var CanClose: Boolean);
begin
 if bClose then
 begin
  ShowMessage('Closed by button!');
  CanClose:= True;
 end
 else
 begin
  ShowMessage('Closed by Form!')
  CanClose:= False;
 end;
end;


Of course, the other way would be to set the form's BorderIcon's property (biSystemMenu) to false, and set the BorderStyle property to bsSingle.

Hope this helps!

How do You call it programatically close or from title bar ? :)

  SendMessage(Form1.Handle,WM_SYSCOMMAND,SC_CLOSE,0);

Hello!
What I was looking for was to find out if a form is closed from the "Titlebar", and
the above code figures it out. If the user presses the(x) on the title bar the code
in {your code section} fires. Maybe I was not specific enough in my question.
Sorry for that!

Thanks anyway for You support pals,

Hokki
