I must confess that I am "new" to this discipline, not because I just started, but because I learn slowly. Also, having gained so much from Code Project, I was greatly convicted to contribute something.
While developing a plot library for a data analysis tool using unmanaged C++ (MFC) in VS7, I discovered that my app was not
receiving LBUTTONUP messages. Quick and sloppy research revealed that I was not the only one wondering where they were going. At the time I was trying to prevent a window from completely processing the flood of PAINT messages that accompanies resizing events. One approach is to handle
WM_EXITSIZEMOVE which AFAIK are not included in MFC.
ON_MESSAGE( WM_ENTERSIZEMOVE, OnEnterSizeMove)
ON_MESSAGE( WM_EXITSIZEMOVE, OnExitSizeMove)
to your message map.
afx_msg LRESULT OnEnterSizeMove (WPARAM, LPARAM);
afx_msg LRESULT OnExitSizeMove (WPARAM, LPARAM);
in your header file.
Handle the messages returning zero as follows:
LRESULT CWhatever::OnEnterSizeMove( WPARAM wparam, LPARAM lparam)
LRESULT CWhatever::OnExitSizeMove( WPARAM wparam, LPARAM lparam)
NOTE: for both messages, wparam = lparam = 0.
