Re: Re: Disabling quitting the program.
Thanks a lot for the help. The solution is in fact in overriding the
myApp::CloseAppWin in sucj a way:
int myApp::CloseAppWin(vWindow* win)
if (disable) return 0;
else return vApp::CloseAppWin(win);
(note that the version of V, I am using is 1.20)
This really locks the window. So you cannot exit it till disable is true.
The only problem now, is that the "x" in right upper corner "seems to be
available", that is it is "sensetive", while for exemple File/Exit is set to
"non sensetive" each time I need the disabling (and restored after surely).
So the ideal sollution whould be to make the "x" in right upper corner to be
"non sensetive", but I think it is not in the scope of V since this "x" is
something related to Windows, rather than to V. Am I right? So, maybe it
must be looked for in the possibilities of CygWinB20 compiler rather than in
V, doesn't it?
