Given that I have a HWND is there a way to get a CWnd pointer for the window? I want to call CWnd functions for the window. I am intercepting WM_ message and I would like to call class functions to return approprite values.

Alternatively,

CWnd* CWnd::FromHandle();

or

CWnd* CWnd::FromHandlePermanent();

could do it also...
