    Button handler

    Kinda stupid - I actually forgot how to handle buttons

    Code:
    HWND hBtn;
    
    hBtn = CreateWindowEx(
                    0,                                      //more or 'extended' styles
                    TEXT("BUTTON"),                         //'class' of control to create
                    TEXT("Submit"),            //the control caption
                    WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON,   //control style: how it looks
                    20,                                     //control position: left
                    440,                                     //control position: top
                    75,                                    //control width
                    25,                                     //control height
                    hGroupWarr,                                   //parent window handle
                    (HMENU)BTN_SUBMIT,                                   //control's ID
                    hThisInstance,                                //application instance
                    NULL
            );   
            SendMessage(hBtn,WM_SETFONT,(WPARAM)GetStockObject(DEFAULT_GUI_FONT),0);
    In WM_COMMAND:

    Code:
    if (HIWORD(wParam) == BN_CLICKED) {
            MessageBox(hwnd, "lol", "lol", MB_OK);
    }
    BTN_SUBMIT defined as:

    Code:
    #define BTN_SUBMIT 100
    The messagebox doesnt pop up?

    there's no problem with your code, it works fine; in the 'WM_CREATE', you create the button, then switching the 'WM_COMMAND' you search in the 'WPARAM wParam' parameter of the window function (procedure) for a 'HIWORD((WPARAM)wParam)' such as 'BN_CLICKED', if you find it then launch the message. maybe you have an error while the creation of the window, or in the declaration of the main procedure

    It's probably due to some other part of your code. Maybe you could post the whole file's contents?

    It has to do with, that the hGroupWarr gets the message.Any way to 'forward' the messages to the messageproc?

    Controls need to use the main window (hwnd) as parent rather than the group box (hGroupWarr). Just position the controls over the group box. You don't receive the WM_COMMAND message because notifications (WM_COMMAND and WM_NOTIFY) are sent to the parent window of the control.

    I know, but if you look further at the code, you see that im hiding the hGroupWarr, which will also hide all controls on it.

    But I have another idea.Instead of the groupbox, Ill make a new window, with a new messageproc.The same, only a messageproc will be added.

    well just send the main procedure HWND to the 'InitWarreport()' and use it as the handle to the parent or owner window; something like:
    Code:
    ...
    int InitWarreport(HWND );
    ...
    case WM_NOTIFY:
        {
        ...
        if (iIndex == 0) {InitWarreport(hwnd);}
        ...
        }
    break;
    ...
    ...
    int InitWarreport(HWND thehwnd)
    {
    ...
    hBtn=CreateWindowEx(0,"BUTTON","Submit",WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON,
    200,640,75,25,thehwnd,(HMENU)1,hThisInstance,NULL);
    ...
    }
