One other option I'm looking for is a way to prevent a desktop window from closing. Turn off the upper-right 'X'. Is there a way I can do this, based on a page item value?

Do you mean a window, which you open based on the query you defined in the desktop plug-in?
Best is you create a short test case in your trial workspace to clearly understand your needs.

Nope...the window is a desktop environment window. No query, though there is a couple of grids and content loaders. I just need a way to turn off the 'X' part in a desktop window. I'm thinking there is no way to turn that off based on an item on the page? This is very similar to the tab problem I posted. We are trying to close holes where our clients aren't saving their data before they close the window.

You can add the following additional window config when your desktop is based on an existing APEX list e.g.

alt text

Or when your desktop is based on a SQL Query then using the CUSTOM column e.g.

,      pid
,      text
,      url
,      display_seq
,      css_class
,      info
,      '"closable":false'  AS custom
,      widget_id
,      shortcut
,      shortcut_icon
,      quicklaunch
,      width
,      height
,      window_plugin_id

I'm sorry...I guess I was not clear at all. I wanted to programmatically turn the close off when the window was already open based on an item in the window environment.

The ideal solution is to listen to the "beforeclose" event on the window and cancel the event ( if there are pending pages on your page.

This however is not straight forward and requires that you write some javascript to locate the window widget e.g. Ext.getCmp('WINDOW_ID').on('beforeclose',function() { ... code goes here ... }); and add a listener and use the cross page technique which we described in this post:
