Hot buttons

I recently created a series of buttons derived from CBitmapButton and assigned custom bitmaps to handle up, down, hot and disabled states. But it seems that the hot one does not work properly. Maybe I missed something ?

When my mouse pointer go over my buttons, nothing happens. Normally it is supposed to display my hot bitmap.

Cbitmapbutton contains 4 bitmaps. One is for normal, "up" state when button doesn't have focus. Two is when button has focus. Three is when button is pushed. Four is for disabled state. When you move mouse pointer over the button button state doesn't change so that bitmap is not changed. Focus can be moved to the button using TAB key. If you want to change button bitmap you need to handle WM_MOUSEMOVE message, set capture when first WM_MOUSEMOVE is received change bitmap. Then when mouse pointer has left button you should release capture, restore button bitmap. You can also take advantage from _TrackMouseEvent function that would notify you when mouse pointer enters and leaves button.
