Kill (shut down the WindowManager object)

Top  Previous  Next

 

Kill, VIRTUAL, PROC

The Kill method frees any memory allocated during the life of the object and performs any other required termination code. Kill returns a value to indicate the status of the shut down.

Implementation:

Kill sets the Dead property to True and returns Level:Benign to indicate a normal shut down. If the Dead property is already set to True, Kill returns Level:Notify to indicate it is taking no additional action.

Typically, the Kill method is paired with the Init method, performing the converse of the Init method tasks.

The Run method calls the Kill method.

Return value EQUATEs are declared in ABERROR.INC.

Return Data Type:     BYTE

Example:

ThisWindow.Kill PROCEDURE()

CODE

IF PARENT.Kill() THEN RETURN Level:Notify.

IF FilesOpened

 Relate:Defaults.Close

END

IF SELF.Opened

 INIMgr.Update('Main',AppFrame)

END

GlobalResponse = CHOOSE(LocalResponse=0,RequestCancelled,LocalResponse)
