Is there any way to create a message whenever the pdf is closed?

I'm looking for a simple message such as "Please make sure you have attached all required files", which should only have an OK button to simply close the message.

You can use the document action "Document Will Close":

But you can't cancel the close.

Bear in mind that if someone HAS attached the files then closes the PDF. everything is lost anyway. So you need to look into the behaviour around submitting, saving and closing. Consider: "This file will now close. You did not submit or save it. Nice work, you've lost all your typing". Well, not that, but actually, it's very hard to find a good thing to say in this situation.

Are you saying that the files will be lost, even if they have clicked save before exiting?

This is only possible if the end user clicks the "Cancel" button when prompted to save.

Acrobat cannot close a unsaved file without prompting.
