I guess it's about some virtual functions of vApp and vWindow
You can override vWindow::CloseWin() in a way:

// I guess it will be done in command window
void my_cmd_win::CloseWin()
    if (disable)
        note("cannot close window ...");

That will lock the wimdow.
And the application call Exit() method to initiate normal program
which can be override in a similar way. This method is usually called (in
command window by WindowCommand()) when File/Exit is selected and with
other "legal" exit methodds, like Alt+F4 or "x" in right upper corner.
