I want to prevent the user from closing the dialog form when clicking the X Button (in top right corner) if a certain criteria has not been met

procedure TfrmTrackList.FormCloseQuery(Sender: TObject;
  var CanClose: Boolean);
begin
 if Editing then
 begin
  ShowMessage('Can not close while editing.');
  CanClose:= False;
 end;
end;

However, this event never gets called when the "X" button is clicked

What do i have to do to accompish this

Hmmm, It looks right to me. Are you sure the event is assigned and that Editing is true?

My formCloseQuery event is fired when clicking the X button.
This should be standard.
