    Unhappy Balloon tip question: Trap when the user clicks on "X"

    I know how to trap when the user clicks on the body of the balloon, with NIN_BALLOONUSERCLICK, but how to trap when the user clicks on the "X" button in the upper right corner?

    Thanks!

    if there is no message type for it, maybe you should subclass its wndproc and trap WM_CLOSE.

    I've never dealt with these balloon windows, but if you are handling a NIN_BALLOONUSERCLICK message sent to it, you must have it's handle somewhere.
