drag&drop into a CButton

I need a CButton derived object (CSoundButton) to handle drag& drop but as I understand it: only a CView derived class has drag&drop events handling functions.

It also seems I can't use multiple inheritance (deriving my CSoundButton from both CButton and CView) because I can only use one CWnd derived class when using multiple inheritance (as explained in TechNote #016).

Is there another way to handle drag&drop from a CButton derived object-class ?

You must create class derived from COleDropTarget. Overrider its virtual function. In your CButton derived class declare a member of COleDropTarget derived class. Override OnCreate message handler in CButton derived class and call COleDropTarget Register method passing this pointer. Now OnFragEnter, OnDragOver, OnDrawLeave and OnDrop will be called in various situations during drag and drop operation.
