When My WndProc receives a WM_DESTROY message, is the window already destroyed, or is it about to be destroyed?

The WM_DESTROY message is sent when a window is being destroyed. It is sent to the window procedure of the window being destroyed after the window is removed from the screen.

This message is sent first to the window being destroyed and then to the child windows (if any) as they are destroyed. During the processing of the message, it can be assumed that all child windows still exist.


It is in the process of destruction, ie, it is no longer visible, however the window handle is still valid.
