No To [Esc]...Force Them To Use Save Action Button

If your Save button is "more" than just @Command([FileSave]), how can you make
sure that they use that button rather than pressing [Esc] and answering "yes"
to save it...
Form Event: Window Title
FIELD SaveFlag:="0";
"Window Title Here"

Form: Add a field at the very end of the form - SaveFlag(type Text, editable,
hidden)
Input Validation -
@If(
SaveFlag="0";
@Failure("Use the Save button to save the document");
@Success
)

Action Button: Save
FIELD SaveFlag="1";
@If(
@PostedCommand([FileSave]);
@PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow]);
@SetField("SaveFlag";"0")+@Return("")
)
