Right Mouse in Dialog?

I am trying to detect a right mouse button click in an edit control within a dialog.  I have coded:
BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP
     ON_WM_RBUTTONDOWN()
     ...
END_MESSAGE_MAP

-- in dialog class definition --
Protected:
   afx_msg void OnRButtonDown(UINT nFlags, CPoint point);
   ....

-- in dialog class code --
void CSect2::OnRButtonDown(UINT nFlags, CPoint point)
{
   CWnd*  pCurWnd;

   pCurWnd = WindowFromPoint(point);
   if (pCurWnd == GetDlgItem(IDC_ITEM))
  {
      .....
   }
}

In debug mode, I get a break if the mouse click is in the dialog window outside of the edit control, but NO break if mouse click is in edit control.  How do I detect mouse click in edit control ?

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks

 Because the edit control is another window, it the child of the dialog, so you cann't catch the RBUTTONDOWN, you can use EN_CHANGE,EN_UPDATE etc to catch the message from child window.
