Your problem is that the ActiveX control doesn't have a message pump of its own, it relies on your hosting app message pump.
The messages sent to any child window created by your ActiveX control are not received by your ActiveX control.
To resolve that you have to install a hook from your ActiveX control in the application message pump.
This is described in a a technical note in the microsoft knowledge base: article ID Q194294.
