In my MFC application, I want to grey out several fields in my "File" pulldown on the main menubar.   Yet, I have gone to the resource view and specified in the properties that each of these fields should be "greyed out", but it doesn't seem to work.   FYI, these are the "open" and "close", plus all of the "VIEW" characteriestics? Is there something that I'm missing?

Thanks

The right way to do it is to handle the UPDATE_COMMAND_UI message.

Use the wizard to generate a function for your items.

for example: to ovveride the UI message for file open:

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CMyApp, CWinApp)



ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI(ID_FILE_NEW, OnUpdateFileOpen)



END_MESSAGE_MAP()




void OnUpdateFileOpen(CCmdUI* pCmdUI){
 pCmdUI->Enable(FALSE);
}
