    Red face recognizing that the programming is closing

    I want to add a function that does something when the x on the top right hand side of the window is pressed. Is there a function that recognizes when the program is exiting?

    When the X button is pushed, a WM_CLOSE msg is sent to the winow. Just handle that msg and put your function in there.

    Look in your code for WM_CLOSE
    you will be see the exit code
    PostQuitMessage

    anything you want to do before it closes must go before here

    Case is a computer acronym search engine that searches over 700 computer and related acronyms. the description is available if you click on 'about case'. However i see your point and have added a line to the page explaning what it is. The next update (at some point tonight will add a furher 2-300 acronyms to the database)
    Thanks for the input and i hope you all find case to be a useful tool.
