The PP views contain databrowsers, pushbuttons and the problem is that if I click there, the click is swallowed by the control. I need to know when a click occurred anywhere in the window so that the custom HIView at the root can activate the proper PP View.

I have also traversed the subviews of the databrowser to find the scrollbars to I can catch clicks there. However, the bevel buttons above the columns in the databrowser are nowhere to be found in the databrowser subviews as far as I can see.

kEventMouseDown on the window should see all clicks before they are dispatched to the subviews, I think.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
