Problem shutting down application under NT

Problem shutting down application under NT

Problem shutting down application under NT


This is a C++ Builder question:

The OnCloseQuery event enables the programmer to set the CanClose variable (the OnCloseQuery event is simply called because the application received a WM_QUERYENDSESSION from Windows I guess). This enables the application to react when Windows sends a WM_ENDSESSION, resulting in the application being terminated.

Why doesn't it work under Windows NT4 / 2000Pro ?? It simply won't shut down...

Thanks in advance,


RE: Problem shutting down application under NT

try this:

if (Application->MessageBox("Do you want to quit?", "Query", MB_YESNO)==IDYES)

it may be what you already have, and not the answer to your question, but it (in theory) should work...
