I'd like to create a CWnd object that gets keyboard and mouse input, but I don't want to use the WNDCLASS of "EDIT" because this won't always be an edit. I want it to be owner draw.
// Something like this, but don't want to use "EDIT"
CRect Pos(50,200,200,220);
MyWnd.Create(_T("EDIT"),_T("MyInputWnd),WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, Pos, this,1);

AfxRegisterClass() seems pretty complicated (am I wrong?), but is this the only way to do this?

Any ideas? Better yet any code snippets?

Thanks in advance.

It really is not that complicated. Here is an editor based on CWnd: CUltraPadWnd - A Simple Syntax Coloring Control Based on the MFC CWnd Class[^]
