Posted when the user releases the first or second X button while the cursor is in the nonclient area of a window. This message is posted to the window that contains the cursor. If a window has captured the mouse, this message is not posted.
A window receives this message through its WindowProc function.
The high-order word indicates which button was released. It can be one of the following values.
The first X button was released.
The second X button was released.
A pointer to a POINTS structure that contains the x- and y-coordinates of the cursor. The coordinates are relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.
If an application processes this message, it should return TRUE. For more information about processing the return value, see the Remarks section.
Use the following code to get the information in the wParam parameter.
nHittest = GET_NCHITTEST_WPARAM(wParam); fwButton = GET_XBUTTON_WPARAM(wParam);
You can also use the following code to get the x- and y-coordinates from lParam:
xPos = GET_X_LPARAM(lParam); yPos = GET_Y_LPARAM(lParam);
By default, the DefWindowProc function tests the specified point to get the position of the cursor and performs the appropriate action. If appropriate, it sends the WM_SYSCOMMAND message to the window.
Unlike the WM_NCLBUTTONUP, WM_NCMBUTTONUP, and WM_NCRBUTTONUP messages, an application should return TRUE from this message if it processes it. Doing so will allow software that simulates this message on Windows systems earlier than Windows 2000 to determine whether the window procedure processed the message or called DefWindowProc to process it.
