CSliderCtrl notifications

I have a dialogbar  with a slider control in it. Using ClassWizard, I added
handlers for the notification messages I was interested in.
I want those notifications to be handled by the CMainframe class owning the CDialogbar.

None of the notifications messages are dispatched for CsliderCtrl controls.  Also, I noticed that Windows is sending for example a WM_SETFOCUS message and not a NM_SETFOCUS message.  And even if it's a WM_SETFOCUS message, I can't trap it.

Do I need to add something to my code in order to ensure that the
notification messages are actually sent? Or do I need to add something to
the message map to handle the WM_ messages being sent to the control?  I would like to be able to trap WM_HSCROLL too wenever the user slides the track bar.

Best Regards,

Charles Bissonnette

A slider control notifies its parent window of user actions by sending the parent WM_HSCROLL messages. In your case, the parent window of the slider control is the CDialogbar. You should override CDialogbar::OnHScroll member function to transfer the message to the CMainframe.
void CDialogbar::OnHScroll(UINT nSBCode, UINT nPos, CScrollBar* pScrollBar)
{
    ::AfxGetMainWnd()->PostMessage(WM_HSCROLL, MAKEWPARAM(nSBCode, nPos), LPARAM(pScrollBar->GetSafeHwnd()));
}

Thanks ,
 
I though every messages dispatched by a cdialogbar class were  routed directly to his host parent class.

Right now I catch the WM_NOTIFY messages and It seems to work fine, but it's very a pain in the neck since every messages are not only sent when you slide the track bar, but also every time  I lost the focus on the control.  This adds overhead for nothings.

And thanks for you tips,

Charles
