I have been able to capture the "NTCH" messages whenever the state of a
specific control changes. For example, when I click the "CheckBox1" control,
the NTCH message is intercepted. The order goes like _MUP, ChCl (my
customized command message for the control) and then NTCH.

When I spoke to my supervisor, he told me that the NTCH message was the
notification message. I looked at the information in it and it consists of 6
when,   source,     be:value,    be:sender,     be:observe_orig_what,
We believe this may be the message we were looking for when need to look at
a control changing its state.

The thing is I would like to see whether any of these attributes contain the
value "CheckBox1" which I can use for my analysis. I suspect the "CheckBox1"
string might be in the sender or source attributes. How do I look at these
attributes though? Source is of a B_POINTER_TYPE (void* i think) and sender
is BMessenger. I cant just do a toString() style of code to these attributes
and view their values, isnt it?
