Yup, if you like you can use SendDlgItemMessage also with 'normal' windows (if you have set an item ID at creation time) :D

I don't know the actual implementation of SendDlgItemMessage or SendMessage, maybe SendMessage is a bit faster? The fact is that I rarely store the HWND of child controls, while is usually assign constant IDs to interact with them. If you use SendDlgItemMessage your program maybe will be a bit slower, but it will need less ram :grin:.
