Graying Popup Menu Items

I have had success had graying out menu items in the OnUpdatMenuName(CCmdUI *pCmdUI) functions using

     pCmdUI->Enable(some BOOL);

how do I extend that to my pop up menus?  Thanks!

There's no difference between normal menus & pop up menus with respect to graying out menu items. Try out the same technique & it should work fine with pop up menus

Hope this helps

Hey mitchell,

You haven't accepted/rejected my previous answer to your question 'VC++ Menu question' under C++!

I would really appreciate if you could do the needful

Thanks,
Wilfred

I appologize.  I find your answer ineffective.  I have in my CDocument the mapped OnUpdatexxxUI already in place, yet it does not work for the popup menus.  Is there an additional function I need to use for popups?

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

Hi mitchell,

There is no additional function that you need to use apart from the OnUpdatexxx handler.

I have used it successfully.

Try out the following:
You said that you can enable/disable a menuitem. Choose any popup menu item & give it the same id as one of the menuitems which you can disable. Please note that the id should be the same. Now check to see if both the menuitems (ie. the original menuitem & the popup menuitem) are disabled.

If the original menuitem is disabled, the popup menuitem should also get disabled since they have the same ID.

Hope this helps

PS. You still haven't accepted/rejected my answer to the question 'VC++ Menu question' under C++. Its already over 2 weeks old. Since you have stated in this question that you can gray menuitems, I suppose that you are in a position to grade my previous answer.

Hi mitchell,

Did the above technique work?

Please let me know so that I can post it as an answer

I had similar problems.  I found that if I made the owning frame window be the target of the TrackPopupMenu() call, that the built in menu updating features of MFC did work properly.  Here is an example of how to call TrackPopupMenu to have this work:

void CMyWin::OnContextMenu(CWnd* pWnd, CPoint point)
{
   CMenu menu;
   if (!menu.LoadMenu(IDR_SOME_MENU) ) return;
   CMenu* mPtr = menu.GetSubMenu(0);
   if (NULL != mPtr) {
      mPtr->TrackPopupMenu(TPM_LEFTALIGN, point.x, point.y,
            GetParentFrame() );
   }
}
