Message routing

Hi,
I want rout a message to a CCmdTarget derived class.
I tried something like that (in the Main-App):

BOOL CMyApp::OnCmdMsg(UINT nID, int nCode, void* pExtra, AFX_CMDHANDLERINFO* pHandlerInfo)
{
   if ((m_pMyCmdDerivedClass != NULL)&& m_pMessageController->OnCmdMsg(nID, nCode, pExtra, pHandlerInfo))
   return TRUE;

   return CWinApp::OnCmdMsg(nID, nCode, pExtra, pHandlerInfo);
}

m_pMyCmdDerivedClass is a pointer to my class (derived from CCmdTarget).
This works fine for commands in the menu (e.g. file open).
But if I post a message to my Main-App thread like
#define WM_MY_MESSAGE WM_USER + 1

::PostThreadMessage( AfxGetApp( )->m_nThreadID, WM_MY_MESSAGE, 0, 0 );

the message is posted to the main thread object (I can catch it with ON_MESSAGE(WM_MY_MESSAGE, MyMethod)    )
BUT IT IS NOT ROUTED TO THE m_pMyCmdDerivedClass OBJECT!!!!!!!!!
any ideas?

As you can see in the name of the handler "OnCmdMsg" this is for commande messages, namely WM_COMMAND.

What you might want to do is define new WM_COMMAND messages and post them to your app, they will be routed correctly and be catchable by any object in the food chain.

You can check the doc for a command message, but BEWARE that command message notifications might interfere with your own.

Something like:

pWnd->PostMessage(WM_COMMAND, (WPARAM)MAKELONG(0,USER_DEFINED_NOTIF), (LPARAM)hWnd);
