Closing a Dialog Window

Posted on 2004-10-27

I would like to close my dialog window from button code. I can see that EndDialog() is probaby the routine to call but it wants a "handle" to the dialog window.  How can I get this from my code.  It doesn't seem to be passed in.

Thanks for any help.

    If you are working with a MFC CDialog derived class, you don't need a handle. Just call EndDialog(IDOK).
    It is the CDialog::EndDialog function member:
    The unique argument is a result value, could be any integer value you want, but I recommend you to use IDOK constant to simulate an "OK" pressure.

    Ok, that works fine.  I was looking at the EndDialog() for Windows Management, that returns a BOOL and takes a HWND parameter.  Apparently when you're in a Dialog button routine you default to the EndDialog() you pointed to rather than the one I was looking at.
