I am developing an ActiveX control in VC++ ATL2.1.

I could not get WM_LBUTTONUP message when mouse button is released outside the control's client area.

( I could receive it when button is released within the client area)

How to receive it?

Thanks for any help.

There is a function SetCapture
It exists as SDK function , CWnd Function and CWindow Function.
You have to call it on WM_LBUTTONDOWN so all mouse messages are going to your window regardles if the mouse is inside or outside your window
to release the capture call ReleaseCapture when capture is no more needed
Probably in WM_LBUTTONUP message handler
