ActiveX control in a Dialog Bar

Platform: VC++ 5.0 on NT4.0
I am using an ActiveX Control (Microsoft TreeView version 5.0) in a dialog bar. However I don't get any events from this ActiveX control.
I created the dialog bar in OnCreate() of the CMainFrame class and the events from all controls on the dialog bar are handled in the CMainFrame class itself. For other controls it works fine but in the case of the ActiveX control the CMainFrame doesn't seem to get any Events fired from the ActiveX control.
This is the code for handling an event from the AtiveX control:
BEGIN_EVENTSINK_MAP(CMainFrame, CMDIFrameWnd)
//{{AFX_EVENTSINK_MAP(CMainFrame)
ON_EVENT(CMainFrame, IDC_TREECTRL1, -600 /* Click */, OnClickTreectrl1, VTS_NONE)
//}}AFX_EVENTSINK_MAP END_EVENTSINK_MAP()
void CMainFrame::OnClickTreectrl1()
{
// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
AfxMessageBox("Inside OnClickTreectrl1()");
}
NOTE: The same control works fine when I create it as part of a dialog box
and handle events in a CDialog derived class or CFormView derived class.

You can handle event in your dialog bar derived class. Add event sink macros to this class. And also you can handle "reflected events" from ActiveX control in your control's wrapper class. Instead of ON_EVENT macro use ON_EVENT_REFLECT macro.
