Sure, but this means that I must know when the window will be redrawn. What I 
would like is each time the AES redraws the toolbar, a way of knowing that it 
does so that I can intervene if I need to.

As an example, suppose you have inside a toolbar a box with some scrollable 
text drawn via the VDI. Each time you click the arrows you receive a message 
so you can scroll the text. But when the text must be redrawn for some other 
reason, the window never receives a WM_REDRAW message so you can't update the 

I suspect there is no other way around a G_USERDEF in those cases.
