I have an AIR application running on a Mac and I want to have the behavior of hiding the window when someone "closes" the app (e.g. hits the red "x" button or cmd-w). However, if someone hits cmd-q or chooses "Quit" from the dock context menu or top level menu, I want the app to actually close.I can preventDefault on the "closing" event sent by the application, however, this causes all "close" methods to just hide the window. The only way for someone to close the application at that point is ForceQuit (or through a separate interface I provide, like a context menu option on the dock icon).

I have also tried capturing the cmd-q keyDown event manually, but it doesn't get sent. Also, this wouldn'tor the case when people try to quit the app using the menu options.Furthermore, if I preventDefault on the closing method, it causes my application to cancel a shut down process immediately (which is a terrible user experience).Is there a way to detect different methods of closing an AIR application? I want to be able to tell the difference between these closing methods and react to the appropriately.
