I am working on a MDI client/server appliaction where if I am calling the OnEditCut, OnEditPaste and OnEditCopy while running the application at Windows Nt 4.0  it loses focus. The same handlers are working okay if the application is run on Windows 95.

No idea WHY that is happening, but you might be able to kludge it by calling SetForegroundWindow() after your calls to OnExitXxxx().  Or maybe a short duration timer...

(Just so you can make it work in the meantime.)

Why would you call those functions?  They're message handlers, designed to be called by MFC in response to a message.  It doesn't make much sense to call them directly yourself, and depending on exactly how you do so, you can crash or corrupt your system.

You should be calling the CEdit::Copy() or CEdit::Cut(), or CEdit::Paste() methods. You shoudln't call event handlers.

Hmmm..  I shoulda read the question closer...  Mikeblas is correct.  Usually, any OnXxxx() functions are called by the framework in response to a message (action).

That actually might be your problem!
