How can i get the coordinates (initial and final both) from the drag of mouse on a message box in MFC.

What I have tried:

I have tried OnMouseMove() from whose CPoint i can get the coordinates of the drag in a mesaage box but i want initial coordinates when the mouse started to drag. So i am confused at that part how to get that.

You need to implement an OnLButtonDown method to handle when the left mouse button is pressed and save the point that is passed to it.
