The ActiveX Control have a custom popup menu (child window), I use SetCapture to know when the user make a click outside the popup menu.

I release the mouse when the popup menu is closed.

Rosh, I fix the problem with:

int CxxxxCtrl::OnMouseActivate(CWnd* pDesktopWnd, UINT nHitTest, UINT message)
{
      if (AmbientUserMode()){
            if (!m_bUIActive) OnActivateInPlace (TRUE, NULL);
      }

      return COleControl::OnMouseActivate(pDesktopWnd, nHitTest, message);
}

Can I ask you another question right here????

Is related to the SetCapture:

My control release the mouse in the mouse down message, but because the setcapture I loose this message for the rest of the windows. For example when the user make click on the minimize button on the container window, this click don´t respond the first time because the setcapture.

There is a way to after the ReleaseCapture, to send a MouseDown message to the windows clicked.

Thanks.

Use WindowFromPoint, and post a mouse click to that window if needed.
