Getting Control ID in Message Handler

I'm writing a plugin for windows media player in visual c++. I'm trying to work within the framework created by the wizard. I have a PropertyDialog that I wanted to add spin controls to but I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out how to work with the message and change the associated edit box controls.

So I have been able to catch messages from the spin control via the following message map:

MESSAGE_HANDLER( WM_VSCROLL, OnVScroll )


However, I have multiple spin controls and need to take different actions depending on which control the event is coming from.  So far I have the following function for the handler.

LRESULT CPropertyDialog::OnVScroll(UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, BOOL& fHandled)
      {
      
            int nScrollCode = (int)LOWORD(wParam);
            int nPos = (short int)HIWORD(wParam);
            SCROLLINFO si = {sizeof(SCROLLINFO),
                                    SIF_PAGE|SIF_POS|SIF_RANGE|SIF_TRACKPOS, 0, 0, 0, 0,
                                    0};

            if (nScrollCode == SB_ENDSCROLL) {
                  return 0; // Reject spurious messages
            }

}

I would like to add something like this to get the control id:

if (lParam->GetDlogCtrlID() == IDC_SPIN1)

suggestions?


Thanks,

Jason

This should do it:

GetDlgCtrlID((HWND)lParam)

Thanks rstaveley,

I tired this out earlier but on compilation a get the following error:
error C2660: 'ATL::CWindow::GetDlgCtrlID' : function does not take 1 arguments

It seems that this vc project setup by the Windows Media Player plugin wizard dosn't have access to many normal functions included in a standard MFC project. I think the project is setup toward producing a dll and working with COM interfaces. Do you know of a work around to or an alternative method that might be possible in my kind of vc project.

Thanks,

Jason

I spoke too soon,

It appears that i just needed to let the compiler know a little more about the symbol

The following works,

::GetDlgCtrlID((HWND)lParam)

Thanks,

Jason

If you were wondering, the leading '::' gets it to use the global namespace, which is what you need in this case. Thanks for the points!

Just to add a thought:
The normal way to do this is to have the ClassWizard create a control-type variable for the Spin control.  And when you look at the "Object IDs" list, you will see that control.  When you click on it, you can see notification messages that it sends.  Click on UDN_DELETAPOS and select "Add Function" and you will end up with a nice tidy little function that gets called whenever the user cspins the control.
