I need to be able to grab the mouse move events while the user is moving over a CRichEditCtrl, and determine the character position of the mouse.  In other words, the OnMouseMove() method tells me a CPoint, where the mouse pointer is, and I need to convert this over to a
character position within the control.  

Anyone any ideas

Cheers, but I gotta a problem with EM_CHARFROMPOS, it just give me zero.

Code below, thanks

CResultsDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
  if (NULL != m_pToolTip)
      m_pToolTip->RelayEvent(pMsg);
     
  if (pMsg->message==WM_MOUSEMOVE && 
     pMsg->hwnd==m_note.m_hWnd )
  {
     long res;
         
     res = m_note.SendMessage(EM_CHARFROMPOS,0,(long)
                                  &pMsg->pt);

         
     //RES ALWAYS ZERO!
