Closing dialog application

Closing dialog application

Closing dialog application

Hello everybody,

I'm developing a small dialog application. it's got the cancel button, when you press it it closes the application, and that's fine.
I want the application to be closed when I type in Alt+F4 or I click on the red cross button, the button you usually use to close every window.
My code at the moment appears like this:


SUBROUTINE WinATDSub( dlg, id, callbacktype )

  use user32
  use dflogm

  implicit none
  include 'resource.fd'

  type (dialog) dlg
  integer id, callbacktype

  if (callbacktype == dlg_destroy) then
    call PostQuitMessage(0)

What should I add to make it appen?


RE: Closing dialog application

I don't really know the relationship between Fortran and Windows.  In the C interface, it is the WM_CLOSE message.  Have a look at http://www.mdstud.chalmers.se/~md7amag/code/wintut/wtpart1.html for an example.

It is called SC_CLOSE in MFC but I don't think you want to go down that path.

RE: Closing dialog application


The Dialog function in Intel 9.0 or higher and CVF 6.6c permits the dialog to be introduced as mode or modeless dialogs.  There is a starting procedure dlgint(Idd_Dialog_Name,dlg).  To close the dialog the procedure is dlgUnint(dlg).

There may be other commands from a dialog system similar to the above.  I have found Intel to be an excellent source for fortran-windows interface.  You can also search for www.indowsway.com, absoft, lahey and other fortran-windows compilers.

RE: Closing dialog application

I found the Intel Forum very good.

What I found:
the DFLOGM code checks if a button with IDCANCEL exists, and, not having found it, does nothing.

Solution: add a button with "Close" or "Cancel" caption and assign identifier IDCANCEL to it (or change the properties of "Apply" button if you don't need it).  The button may even be hidden (Visible=false) if you don't want it visible.'

Thank you all for your help.
