    Respond to a BN_CLICKED notification which is sent to the button's parent in the form of a WM_COMMAND message. There are many examples of how to do this on this board but here it is again anyway:
    Code:
    case WM_COMMAND:
      {
      HWND hCntrl;
      WORD wID,wNotify;
      
      hCntrl=(HWND)lParam;
      wID=LOWORD(wParam);
      wNotify=HIWORD(wParam);
      
      if (hCntrl)
        {
        /*notification is from a control*/
        if (wNotify==BN_CLICKED)
          {
          /*the notification is a result of a button click*/
          if (wID==identifier_of_your_button
            {
            /*button click came from button with id of 
            identifier_of_your_button*/
            }
          }
        }
      }
    where identifier_of_your_button is, unsurprisingly, the identifier of your button control.

    Since you seem to be doing a lot with controls just now, msdn: Windows Controls should be of considerable use to you. Please take the time to study the sections on the controls you are currently using: buttons, edits, toolbars, statusbars.

    I expect the msdn: common dialogs will prove useful, too.
