    Custom Command id's for WM_COMMAND

    I want to know if it is possible to define a custom command to be sent to WM_COMMAND in the window procedure. For instance I made a toolbar and buttons are created with TBBUTTONS each one has a id command variable that can have STD_NEWFILE and things like that assigned to it.

    Can I define my own command id like similar to STD_NEWFILE to be sent to WM_COMMAND whenever I select a button.

    Strictly saying there are no standard command ids in Windows, and whatever command id you set in control, or menu item, or toolbar button, it appears to be custom.
