Hi! I am working on a joystick test program using MFC. I know Windows platform includes some multimedia extension Windows messages (not standard windows messages) like MM_JOY1BUTTONDOWN to handle Multimedia devices.  When I am
trying to press any button of the joystick so that Windows will notify my program that one of its buttons has change states, it does NOT WORK if I use ON_MESSAGE(MM_JOY1BUTTONDOWN , OnJoyButtonDown) to handle MM_JOY1BUTTONDOWN message.
(Note: OnJoyButtonDown is a user-defined message function)

Could you tell me the correct way to solve my problem ASAP?

You should use the joySetCature function first to capture the joystick so that its messages will be sent to the specified window.
