Hi Michail,

Instead of handling the WINDOW_CLOSED event in the CEmbeddedFrame class, 
can we make the Dialog peer do something upon closing? From Java 
perspective, the Dialog knows about its parent, so at the peer's level 
the dialog peer could simply call a method in the CEmbeddedFrame when 
the dialog is closing.

best regards,
