Handling OnLButtonDown in parent window, when left button down takes place in activeX control

I have a VC 6.0 app that has an active X control in it.  When the user left-clicks in the active X control, I need the parent window to be notified.  

Currently, the OnLButtonDown(...) message handler in the ActiveX control is handling the left-click, so the OnLButtonDown(....) handler in the parent window never gets called.

So, is there a way to continuing handling the mouse click in the activeX control, but ALSO immediately notify the parent window that a left-button-down event occurred?

Thanks ahead of time.

Had you try to post a message to the parent?

I originally didn't know that post to the parent from the ActiveX control window.  But I took a look in the dialog wizard for my parent window, and found a click message handler.  That took care of it.

Thanks.
