    Stop Process?

    I have made a simple little window. When I close the app, the process keeps running.

    I have this in my code

    Code:
    case WM_DESTROY:
            
        UnregisterClass("Class", g_hInstance);
        PostQuitMessage ( 0 );
            
    break;
    Why is the programs process still running after I close the app.
    What is C++?

    does your GetMessage loop check for the 0 value?

    PostQuitMessage() simply puts WM_QUIT into the thread's message queue. Does your message loop handle WM_QUIT?

    Ah, thank you,

    I forgot to check for WM_QUIT

    [edit]
    Funny thing is I just gave an example of that to someone else.
