I have a Class CSimpleHtmlView derived from CHtmlView, when I launch the application, i make it navigate a local html file which has a button on it.I want to Deal with the button-click event.
the script that define the button is like this:
<div style="font-family:Tahoma;font-size:12px;float:left;"><input onclick="window.external.OnBackward();" type="button" id="backward"  value="backward" /></div>
then I add the macro DECLARE_DISPATCH_MAP() in the CTestHtmlview's header file and a function to deal with the event. eg. void OnBackward();
In the implementing file, I add some other Macro as below:
BEGIN_DISPATCH_MAP(CSimpleHtmlView, CHtmlView)
	DISP_FUNCTION(CSimpleHtmlView, "OnBackward",  OnBackward,  NULL, NULL)
and implement the function. the application can't stop at the breakpoint in that function when i debug the application; Is there anything else should be added in the code? what can i do then?
thank you!

is your OnBackward method being called?
I don't understand 'can't break into it'

I mean that the application can't stop at the breakpoint in that function, In other words the function isn't called.

Qualifier here - I have no experience with CHtmlView, I use the browser through WTL[^] - in that architecture it's necessary to call SetExternalDispatch[^] to glue the browser events into the window
I found this thread that talks about MFC being broken[^] - it does point to an alternative

thank you, barneyman!
I have found a resolution. the cusory step is following:
1. establish a new project based dialog, checking the "automation" option.
2. add a new class derived from CHtmlView, checking the "automation" option too.
3. add a new method for the interface(the wizard will create for you when checking the automation). eg.void myfunction1(void);
4.override the "OnGetExternal" virtual function of your derived class, fill the function body with following code
*lppDispatch = GetIDispatch(TRUE);
    return S_OK;
then, you can fire the function in html, just like this:
my os is win7 ultimate, and the IDE is VS2008!
