Window Buttons



Well Known Member
Hello List,

Is there a way to disable the Window button for close(X).
I did try to uncheck the System menu checkox,but that just disables (X)for
the application window that is currently running.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Hi Euroboy,
You can capture one of the mentioned three standard Windows button, namely the CloseWindow (CloseDown) button.
Pressing the CloseDown will trigger the Close/Cancel (depends on the type of Form) OneWorld Form exit, so all Event Rule logic attached to the events of Close/Cancel will be executed.
I have noticed a strange thing:
I can Disable Close/Cancel form exit using system function in ER logic or changing its attribute on the Exit Properties sheet.
That is right and works: the Close/Cancel will grayed-out on the toolbar and in the File menu of the OneWorld Form but I still we able to press and execute the CloseDown standard Windows button.
Keep in mind this strange behavior when you will attach logic to Close/Cancel.
Hope, could help a bit.
