I need to minimize the program on status bar click event in MFC.
How do I do that?
I asked that question, and the solution I accepted follows:

BOOL CMainFrame::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
  if (pMsg->message == WM_LBUTTONDOWN)
    {
    CRect rect;
    CPoint point((DWORD)pMsg->lParam);

    m_wndStatusBar.GetClientRect(rect);

    if (rect.PtInRect(point))
      ActivateFrame(SW_MINIMIZE);
    }
     
  return CMDIFrameWnd::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}

This doesn't work,
it will minimize the form on a click of a button or combo box elsewhere on the form.

Please help.

I posted this on the other thread as well:

BOOL CMainFrame::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
  if (pMsg->message == WM_LBUTTONDOWN && pMsg->hwnd == m_wndStatusBar.m_hWnd)
    ActivateFrame(SW_MINIMIZE);
     
  return CMDIFrameWnd::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}

Good Luck,
Steve
