    theres only 2 case for ownerdrawn buttons ODS_SELECTED AND ODS_FOCUS and they can't detect if the mouse is just over the button so is it reccomended that i use WM_PARENTNOTIFY or WM_MOUSEOVER ?

    The ODS_HOTLIGHT flag is used to notify about mouse hovering.
    However, I believe your owner drawn button will only recieve these notifications when you have called the TrackMouseEvent function.

    r1ck0r, i tried to test what ODS_HOTLIGHT is about but why did my compiler tell me
    Code:
    G:\C++\System\Main.cpp(46) : error C2065: 'ODS_HOTLIGHT' : undeclared identifier
    /* Have a nice day */

    You just need to update your compiler.

    You need to #define WINVER 0x0500 (see winuser.h) for your project - for simplicity just #define it before you #include windows.h.

    You visit microsoft's website and download and install whatever the latest service pack for it is (6, probably) and get the psdk from them, too.

    You'll still have to #define WINVER as I have described, though.
