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);
}

Myth Busting: MongoDB Scalability (it scales!)

I was talking with one of my colleagues from our Technical Account Manager team about MongoDB’s scalability. He mentioned to me that several customers have been telling him that “MongoDB doesn’t scale!” MongoDB’s scalability was in question?

My response was, “Is that a joke?"

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.
