BOOL DestroyCaret( );
This function has no parameters.
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
DestroyCaret destroys the caret only if a window in the current task owns the caret. If a window that is not in the current task owns the caret, DestroyCaret does nothing and returns FALSE.
The system provides one caret per queue. A window should create a caret only when it has the keyboard focus or is active. The window should destroy the caret before losing the keyboard focus or becoming inactive.
For an example, see Destroying a Caret
