Handle the closeControl message if you want to perform clean-up or do other tasks when the user leaves a card.

Comments

A group is closed when the user either goes to a card that doesn't have the group on it, or closes the stack. Groups with their backgroundBehavior property set to true are sent the message when the user goes to a card that the group is not placed on from one where it is, as well as when the stack is closed.

The closeControl message is sent to groups just before the closeCard message is sent to the card being closed. For nested groups it is sent to the parent group first, then if passed or not handled, it passes through each child group in reverse layer order (from highest to lowest).

For groups with their backgroundBehavior property set to true, the closeControl message is sent after the closeCard message, and just before the closeBackground message.

The actual closing is not triggered by the closeControl message, so blocking it will not stop the card being closed.
