Windows Message Reflection

Windows controls frequently send notification messages to their parent windows. Message reflection allows these notification messages to be handled in either the child control window or the parent window, or in both.

Here are some MSDN articles on the subject:
TN062: Message reflection for Windows Controls
MFC ActiveX Controls: Subclassing a Windows Control

The topic is also discussed in the article Using the ATL windowing classes mentioned in the WTL section.
