I've never used a static control for this (usually I use a picture control) but that shouldn't really affect this problem. Have you tried overriding the windows messages for mouse movement, buttons, etc.?

You should probably just have to override the WM_MOUSEMOVE, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, and maybe WM_LBUTTONUP messages, do your handling there and good ol' Bill will take care of the rest for you.

yah, sorry i meant picture control, and if by override the mouse move message you just mean using this function:

void CoglMFCDialogDlg::OnMouseMove(UINT nFlags, CPoint point)
{
CWnd::OnMouseMove(nFlags, point);
}

then yah that is what i am trying, but the function does not get called when i move the mouse over the opengl window. If you were suggesting something more then that then i am missing something.
