Hello,
I'am trying to create an application on a windows CE device that user can't close.
I've remove the title bar from the window so there is no more X to close, but when the user push enter button while the window have the focus, the application close.
I would like to trap the event and stop closing.

I do this :
BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CSysPeaXIIDlg, CDialog)
#if defined(_DEVICE_RESOLUTION_AWARE) && !defined(WIN32_PLATFORM_WFSP)
      ON_WM_SIZE()
      ON_WM_CLOSE()
      ON_WM_DESTROY()

      
#endif
      //}}AFX_MSG_MAP
END_MESSAGE_MAP()

#if defined(_DEVICE_RESOLUTION_AWARE) && !defined(WIN32_PLATFORM_WFSP)
      afx_msg void OnSize(UINT /*nType*/, int /*cx*/, int /*cy*/);
      afx_msg void OnDestroy();
      afx_msg void OnClose();

#endif
      DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()

When i have set a brakpoint on the ::OnClose and ::OnDestroy events The only one who is called is : OnDestroy ...

Any idea is wellcome
Thanks a lot

it depends on what you're using. if this is MFC (looking at "afx_msg") then


      virtual void OnOK();

Put it right after OnInitDialog() declaration in your header file
