    Proper way to end a dialogbox.

    Howdy. I'm wondering if I am closing my dialogbox properly. As you can see in my WinMain function, my DialogBox is the main window, the only window. Heres my WinMain function:

    Code:
    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, PSTR lpCmdLine, int nShowCmd)
    {
    	MSG msg;
    	HWND hWnd;
    	
    	hWnd = CreateDialog(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_MainDlg), NULL, (DLGPROC)DialogProc);
    
    	ShowWindow(hWnd, nShowCmd);
    
    	while(GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
    	{
    		TranslateMessage(&msg);
    		DispatchMessage(&msg);
    	}
    
    	WSACleanup();
    
    	return 0;
    }
    And here is how I close my dialogbox in my DialogProc function:
    Code:
    ....
    
    	case WM_DESTROY:
    		{	
    			PostQuitMessage(0);
    			return TRUE;
    		}
    	case WM_CLOSE:
    		{
    			DestroyWindow(hWnd);
    			return TRUE;
    		}
    ...
    Should I use EndDialog? Both work.

    Use DestroyWindow for modeless and EndDialog for modal dialogs:

    CreateDialog
    DialogBox
