NM_CLICK is not an event you normally trigger.

Windows sends your app an NM_CLICK notification to your app when the user clicks on your app.

The NM_CLICK notification is sent to the parent window of the edit control when the user clicks on it.  This is sent in the form of a WM_NOTIFY message

You can catch these messages using ON_NOTIFY or ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT (sent to the control's class).  See TN061 and TN062.

When you want to cause the control to do stuff using the member functions of CRichEditCtrl.  

You can use SendMessage to send these events.  However you should be aware that this is not the same as these events actually happening: you are simply sending the notification that the event happened (even though it didn't) not really triggering the actual mouse click.  If you really want to simulate a mouse click use SendMessage to send WM_LBUTTONDOWN and then WM_LBUTTONUP to the control, the edit control will then respond as if it were really clicked on.

mmm... but has it got anything to do with the OnMsgFilter message... online help stated that you can catch this event by modifying the MSGFILTER structure and returning TRUE... how to do that?
