Figuring out window ID under cursor...

I have an app with several Digital Meters on a dialog. I want to be able to track the mouse cursor when the user clicks on one (doesn't have any click events) and get its control command id. I want to do this w/o subclassing if possible. I'm now using the OnParentNotify event to process the click (and I'm translating to figure out double-clicks). Is this possible? Thanks in advance...

You should use WindowFromPoint/ChildWindowFromPoint API calls.
CWnd has them too.
