I am writing a window application, in C++ from scratch.   In my UI, I have a pushbutton....when
pushed, I pull off the message and switch on the type of message, i.e. LBUTTONDN.  My
question is this:  Does this pushbutton have an  ID?  If so, how can I get it?  I am from a
MOTIF background so any comparisons would help....

thanks in advance

When you pushes the button it will send a WM_COMMAND message to its parent (owner). When you receive this message you can get the id of the control which triggered the WM_COMMAND message by doing this:

WORD wId = LOWORD(wParam);
0

If you create your dialog using a resource editor, the control's ID is defined in the include file (usually resource.h).

Also, look at the functions GetDlgCtrlID() and GetDlgItem().
