Hi guys:

I want to do research oh how messages are passed in windows? What happens under the hood when an event occurs for instance a when button is clicked like how the message is pumped to the the specific handler responsible for processing the button click event . How the window registers it windproc. Does child windows for instance controls like labels, textboxes within a dialog have individual wndprocs or they receive messages from their parent? etc etc

Need to know in  a lot more detail about all these.  

I need some good pointers to these topics. Thanks in advance.
