Menu-problems in CDialog-based application

I have a CDialog-based application in which I have attached
a menu to the main dialog. (Both by setting the Menu-
property of the dialog and by explicitly doing CWnd::SetMenu
in my OnInitDialog.)

The menu seems to work OK and the COMMAND message for each
menu-item is correctly sent/called when selected. However,
I have not yet been able to get the UPDATE_COMMAND_UI
message to work.

(I want the UPDATE_COMMAND_UI so that I can implement a
simple MRU-list.)

What is missing to get this working?

You need to handle WM_INITPOPUPMENU and use basically the same code (copy and paste it) as the MFC CFrameWnd code for OnInitPopupMenu

This code creates a CCmdUi for the menu and calls DoUpdate which doe sall the work for you.
