subclass edit control

I am trying to learn how to subclass an edit control and intercept messages.

#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN

#include <windows.h>
#include "resource.h"
#include <Commctrl.h>
#pragma comment(lib, "Comctl32.lib")

HINSTANCE hInst;
LRESULT CALLBACK OwnerDrawButtonProc(HWND hwndDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam,
                               LPARAM lParam, UINT_PTR uIdSubclass, DWORD_PTR dwRefData);

BOOL CALLBACK DialogProc(HWND hwndDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
    switch(uMsg)
    {
        case WM_INITDIALOG:
            /*
             * TODO: Add code to initialize the dialog.
             */
             HWND button = GetDlgItem(hwndDlg, IDC_EDIT1);
            SetWindowSubclass(button, OwnerDrawButtonProc, 0, 0);

            return TRUE;

        case WM_CLOSE:
            EndDialog(hwndDlg, 0);
            return TRUE;

        case WM_COMMAND:
            switch(LOWORD(wParam))
            {
                /*
                 * TODO: Add more control ID's, when needed.
                 */
                case IDC_BTN_QUIT:
                    EndDialog(hwndDlg, 0);
                    return TRUE;

                case IDC_BTN_TEST:
                    MessageBox(hwndDlg, "You clicked \"Test\" button!", "Information", MB_ICONINFORMATION);
                    return TRUE;
            }
    }

    return FALSE;
}


int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nShowCmd)
{
    hInst = hInstance;

    // The user interface is a modal dialog box
    return DialogBox(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(DLG_MAIN), NULL, (DLGPROC)DialogProc);
}

LRESULT CALLBACK OwnerDrawButtonProc(HWND hwndDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam,
                               LPARAM lParam, UINT_PTR uIdSubclass, DWORD_PTR dwRefData)
{
    switch (uMsg)
    {
    case WM_PAINT:

        return TRUE;
    // Other cases...
    }
    return DefSubclassProc(hwndDlg, uMsg, wParam, lParam);
}

There are a few issues, see the comments I left in the code - should compile now:

#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN

#include <windows.h>

#include "resource.h"

#define _WIN32_WINNT 0x501 // for 'SetWindowSubclass()'
#include <Commctrl.h>
#pragma comment(lib, "Comctl32.lib")

HINSTANCE hInst;
LRESULT CALLBACK OwnerDrawButtonProc(HWND hwndDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam,
                               LPARAM lParam, UINT_PTR uIdSubclass, DWORD_PTR dwRefData);

BOOL CALLBACK DialogProc(HWND hwndDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
    switch(uMsg)
    {
        case WM_INITDIALOG:
            /*
             * TODO: Add code to initialize the dialog.
             */
        { // need a scope here to use a local variable in 'switch'
             HWND button = GetDlgItem(hwndDlg, IDC_EDIT1);
            SetWindowSubclass(button, OwnerDrawButtonProc, 0, 0);

            return TRUE;
        }

        case WM_CLOSE:
            EndDialog(hwndDlg, 0);
            return TRUE;

        case WM_COMMAND:
            switch(LOWORD(wParam))
            {
                /*

                 */
                case IDC_BTN_QUIT:
                    EndDialog(hwndDlg, 0);
                    return TRUE;

                    return TRUE;
            }
    }

    return FALSE;
}


int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nShowCmd)
{
    hInst = hInstance;

    // The user interface is a modal dialog box
    return DialogBox(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(DLG_MAIN), NULL, (DLGPROC)DialogProc);
}

LRESULT CALLBACK OwnerDrawButtonProc(HWND hwndDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam,

{
    switch (uMsg)
    {
    case WM_PAINT:

        return TRUE;
    // Other cases...
    }
    return DefWindowProc(hwndDlg, uMsg, wParam, lParam); // there is no 'default subclass' proc, did you mean this one?
}

Thanks JKR it compiles.

Can you please just point me to how to intercept a mouse over event on the edit?

Points will be awarded regardless, but that is ultimately my goal.

Thank you.

Are you thinking about a WM_MOUSEMOVE?

Please look for next question from me.

It is unfair to combine my questions.

Thanks.
