does anyone here uses msn messenger 6 ?
I am trying to get the child controls info (name, class, handle) from the IM windows but it appears as one custom class
I have use WinSpy++ to spy the window, and same thing happens, It appears as one custom class.
is there a way to get info about the controls inside that custom class ?
I am attaching a pic, the red square, is the custom class.

Yeah, I just tried with MouseHook from the MASM32 examples and it returned different window styles as well. I never get the adverts, Norton firewall blocks them for me so I don't ever see them.

you cant not read the child control from the IM custom class.
just msn messenger 6 uses that custom class, previous msn versions dont use that custom control.

any help on how to get info from the child controls inside the IM custom class ?

EnumChildWindows did the job for me, find main parent window
its name is *MSN Messenger* (without the * parts) and class is *MSNMSBLClass*
(again without the * parts), do a FindWindow on that, then begin the enum

thats not the window that I am talking about, you are talking about the main window of MSN Messenger.

I am talking about the MSN Messenger 6 IM windows, its classname is "IMWindowClass"
