Date: 2009may4 Platform: win32 OS: Windows Q. How can I cleanly end my Windows program? A. There are lots of ways to do it. The usual way is for the user to click on [X] to close the main window of your program. You can simulate this by doing:PostMessage(WM_CLOSE);If your program is dialog based, this will do nearly the same thing:EndDialog(IDCANCEL); - simulates clicking on [Cancel]orEndDialog(IDOK); - simulates clicking on [OK]Less elegantly you can post a quit message:PostQuitMessage(int nExitCode);An nExitCode of 0 (zero) means success and non-zero doesn't If you want to rudely end your app use either of these:TerminateProcess(HANDLE hProcess, int nExitCode);exit(int nExitCode);
