its a dialog based application.
every time the mouse is on the list control area the OnMouseMove of the dialog is not catching the event....

You can also subclass the listctrl and in the CListCtrl derived class will you get the WM_MOUSEMOVE message.

Hi!
more general way:
install local MOUSE hook in the dialog and translate all message to the dialog procedure.

i defined message and used DefWindowProc in the dialog to catch it.
in the listCtrl i used GetParent()->SednMEssage(WM_THE_MSG,0x0,0x0) to notify the dialog on Mouse move, is it ok?

You use subclassing via MFC classes so I don`t understand your last question.
