Detect / Hook a Closing Child Window

Recommended Posts


In the past I have used windows messages to detect the creation and closing of windows.

Is there a way to get a message when one of my child windows is closing/closed/destroyed?

I only know how to hook top level windows, but I guess there must be a way to hook your own child windows too.

In a message loop, you'll get $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE = -3.

In event mode, you can do GuiSetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_YourFunctionHere") and handle it as an event.
