I want to bitmap button using win32 api.

So I'm using WM_DRAWITEM.

It works well.

But When mouse is over a button, I want to change button's image.

So I insert below code.

---------------------------
case WM_MOUSEMOVE :
     if (!m_bTracking)
     {
          tme.cbSize = sizeof(tme);
          tme.hwndTrack = GetDlgItem(hwnd, IDOK); <-- something is wrong!
          tme.dwFlags = TME_LEAVE|TME_HOVER;
          tme.dwHoverTime = 1;
          m_bTracking = _TrackMouseEvent(&tme);
     }
     return 0;
case WM_MOUSELEAVE :
        m_bTracking = FALSE;
     m_bHover=FALSE;
     MessageBox(NULL, "MouseLeave", "a", MB_OK);
     UpdateWindow(GetDlgItem(hwnd, IDOK));
     return 0;
case WM_MOUSEHOVER :
     m_bHover=TRUE;
     MessageBox(NULL, "MouseHover", "a", MB_OK);
     UpdateWindow(GetDlgItem(hwnd, IDOK));
     return 0;
-----------------------------

If I execute a program, I can't receive WM_MOUSEHOVER message.

So I modify tme.hwndTrack, tme.hwndTrack = hwnd;(this is dialog's handle)

I can receive WM_MOUSEHOVER...

Why I can't use button's handle at tme.hwndTrack ???
