    MSDN question

    Hi, ALL,
    How can I find the documentation on the OnItemPostPaint() function?
    If I go to msdn.microsoft.com and search for this function the search comes back empty.

    Google also does not produce any msdn links.

    Thank you.

    OnItemPostPaint seems to be a WTL constant, and WTL is not part of the official Visual C++ set of libraries offered by Microsoft.

    Paul,
    Do you know of the Win32 function in MSVC that will do the same thing?

    I'm looking for something like this.

    Thank you.

    Search the WTL source code and see how that message is generated.

    There's not "OnItemPostPaint", neither in Windows SDK (or MFC or other known library from MS), nor in WTL.
    It just looks (with respect of some naming convention) like an application-defined message handler name.
    So you cannot expect to find it in MSDN or WTL documentation.

    Aha!

    That code snippet handles a notification sent by a custom draw control.
    Please, have a look in our previous discussion, and note again: in Windows there is no "standard" message/notification handler (name).
    So generally, it has no much sense to search documentation for a given message/notification handler name. Instead, search for the message/notification name itself.
    In our case: first search MSDN for NM_CUSTOMDRAW notification code, then dig into the related topics:
