Do you mean Alt+F4? Handle WM_CLOSE message:

void CtMyDlg::OnClose()
{
    // Put your code here.
    // Call CDialog::OnClose to close dialog.
    // return without calling CDialog::OnClose to prevent closing dialog.

    CDialog::OnClose();
}

OnClose function is called when user presses Alt+F4, clicks Close button in the title bar, or selects Close from system menu.

I have put in the code, i tried remove the line CDialog::OnClose(); yes it wont close when pressing alt+f4 meaning it really call the onclose function but then when i put in CDialog::OnClose() as my dialog is CMagazineCleanUpDlg so it looks like CMagazineCleanUpDlg::OnClose() ofcause, but it wont exit and the whole dialog hang, i will have to press ctrl+alt+del and terminate the process.why?

>> so it looks like CMagazineCleanUpDlg::OnClose() ofcause.

This creates endless recursion. It should be CDialog::OnClose - call to base class function.
