In my dialog box I got 2 edit boxes. First one is subclassed
by CMyEdit ( a general class derived from CEdit ). In CMyEdit I've handled WM_KILLFOCUS. Now I need to handle the killfocus event of my first edit box in my dialog box also.
This is the situation. How do I give notification to
the dialog from CMyEdit class and how to handle it in my dialog class. please explain it in detail.

The dialog box is the parent window of the edit box. You may define a message and post it to the dialog box.

#define    WM_MYNOTIFICATION        (WM_APP + 1)

ON_MESSAGE(WM_MYNOTIFICATION, OnMyNotification)

LONG CMyDialog::OnMyNotification(UINT, LONG)
{
    //...
    return 0L;
}

void CMyEdit::OnKillFocus(CWnd *pNewWnd)
{
    //...
    CWnd *pWndParent = this->GetParent();
    if (pWndParent != NULL)
         pWndParent->PostMessage(WM_MYNOTIFICATION);
    //...
}

Thank you for your response.
This is working. But since CMyEdit is a generic class, in some other dialog, we may
have to have more than one edit boxes to be subclassed with CMyEdit. In that case
the parent window may not be able to distinguish between the messages of the edit
boxes. So can you suggest any other way to solve this problem. What about ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT? can we use this here? Please give me the steps to implement this.

Pass the window handle and ID of the edit controls along with the notification message.

void CMyEdit::OnKillFocus(CWnd *pNewWnd)
{
    //...
    CWnd *pWndParent = this->GetParent();
    if (pWndParent != NULL)
         pWndParent->PostMessage(WM_MYNOTIFICATION, (WPARAM)(this->GetSafeHwnd()), (LPARAM)(this->GetDlgCtrlID()));
    //...
}

LONG CMyDialog::OnMyNotification(UINT wParam, LONG lParam)
{
    HWND hWndEdit = (HWND)wParam;
    int nIDEdit = (int)lParam;
    //...
    return 0L;
}
