I have a CStatic control (precisely an icon) in a CFormView and I'd like to perform some tasks when the user release the left mouse button over that icon.
I tried putting
ON_NOTIFY(WM_LBUTTONUP, IDC_STATIC, OnMouse Release)
in my CFormView code and implementing my tasks in a function called OnMouseRelease, but nothing happened.
Many thanks in advance!

Did you apply the SS_NOTIFY style to the CStatic control?

When a static control receives WM_LBUTTONDOWN message, it sends the parent window an STN_CLICKED notification message if the control style is SS_NOTIFY. When WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK, it sends the parent window an STN_DBLCLK notification message if the control style is SS_NOTIFY. For WM_LBUTTONUP, it does not send a notification message. Therefore, subclass the static control and override CStatic::OnLButtonUp().

The left button up has to perform the deleting of selected items in a CListBox contained in the same CFormView. If I subclass the static control and override CStatic::OnLButtonUp I can't get a pointer to MyFormView in order to handle the CListBox items ...
... (I tried to include MyFormView.h, but I got an error in CMyDoc *GetDocument ...!)
I hope you can help me!

Many thanks for your time!!

The better way to do it is to send a message to MyFormView instead of handling it directly. Define your own message (WM_MYMESSAGE), in the overriden CStatic::OnLButtonUp(),

CWnd *pWndParent = this->GetParent();
if (pWndParent != NULL)
    pWndParent->PostMessage(WM_MYMESSAGE);

When MyFormView receives the message, delete the selected items in the CListBox.
