Messages not handled when creating modeless dialog

I am trying to create a modeless dialog within an ATL object using MFC.   If I call the CDialog::DoModal() method everything works fine.  All messages that I need are handled and the window works fine.

If I call CDialog::Create() however, I don't seem to get the chance to handle the standard messages like PreTranslateMessage or OnDestroy.  Why is this and how do I fix it?

Is this an override class of CDialog, if so can you show some of the code.  It's possible that the message map may be messed up.

My guess is that the dialog is a temporary in a calling function.
when the scop of the calling function ends, the dialog die's.
The create function unlike DoModal returns imidiatly after creating the dialog rather then after it has been destroyed.
