Passing cursor 'over' control - notify?

How can I catch cursor  passing 'over' a pushbutton and how can I determine cursor leaving the control? I guess, I should use WM_NOTIFY but how?

Set BS_NOTIFY style and then respond to OnMouseMove

I have code that does this for changing cursor shape and for giving the flat look of an IE-style toolbar button (where borders appear as mouse moves over.

I don't quite understand why BS_NOTIFY is necessary, nevertheless I wanted to get a general idea only and I've got it. Thanks for help!

BS_NOTIFY lets the control respond to focus change and mouse move messages etc (I think).  Otherwise, you don't get to see them
