I've got a CFormView derived class with several edit controls. I want the user to be able to use Ctrl-C,Ctrl-V etc in them. I also want to use accelerators. In order to enable Copy, Paste etc, I added the code below. That code also seems to disable the accelerators. Any idea how to fix that?
BOOL CAdrEditView::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
if( pMsg->message != WM_INITDIALOG && IsDialogMessage(pMsg))
  return TRUE;
return CFormView::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}

If i'm not mistaken, edit controls automatically pick up cut, copy, paste, etc.. without requiring a PreTranslateMessage(). Was there some other reason you added that function?

If you have access to the CD, you might want to do a search for the following article:
   Using Accelerator Keys When Modal Dialog Box Main Window

It provides some step-by-step instructions for setting up, and using an accelerator table in a modal dialog box (not necessarily as the main window. at that!).

Edit controls in a CFormView does NOT automatically pick up cut, copy, paste. That's why I added the PreTranslateMessage().
I read the article, and tried to add a ::TranslateAccelerator as the first line in the PreTranslateMessage (there is no ProcessMessageFilter in a CFromView), but it didn't seem to work.

I think that you have to add ::TranslateAccelerator() to  ProcessMessageFilter() in your C...App class.

To do clipboard functions in a CFormView derived class, I just handle the OnEditCut, OnEditCopy, and OnEditPaste messages.  In them I do the following

//example
void OnEditCut()
{
  CEdit *pedit; // = GetEditCtrlWithFocus() -- you have to write this.

  if (pedit)
    pedit->Cut();
}

The above works whether you pick Edit | Cut from the menu or you do a ctrl-X.
