WM_CLOSE message

Sent as a signal that a window or an application should terminate.

A window receives this message through its WindowProc function.

Parameters

wParam

This parameter is not used.

lParam

Return value

Type: LRESULT

If an application processes this message, it should return zero.

Remarks

An application can prompt the user for confirmation, prior to destroying a window, by processing the WM_CLOSE message and calling the DestroyWindow function only if the user confirms the choice.

By default, the DefWindowProc function calls the DestroyWindow function to destroy the window.
