Background:
I am a uni student in an advanced windows programming subject (using MFC) but have visual c++.net as that is all i could buy and the subject and lecture notes are based on visual c++6. unfortunately i cannot get version 6 and there seems to be big differences in the IDE

Question:
how do i handle adding custom WM_OnLButtonDown functionality and WM_Paint functionality. i am a newbie to this MFC stuff so an informative explanation would be helpful

Select required MFC class (dialog, window) in the Class View. Select Messages tab in the Properties window - it has number of tabs like Properties, Messages, Overrides etc. Find required message in the list - WM_LBUTTONDOWN, WM_PAINT etc. and double-click it.
