This is the "MFC Programming Question" area, so I guess the best answer I could give you is to use CMenu, which has its own version of EnableMenuItem. Then you don't need the handle.

CMenu menu;
if (menu.LoadMenu(IDR_MY_MENU))
{
  menu.EnableMenuItem(nIDEnableItem, nEnable);
}

GetMenu() will return a pointer to the windows menu. (Call this in CMainFrame if you want to get the app manu).

You can call GetMenu() from any window, and it will return a pointer to *its* own menu.

But I dont think your CView class has any menu, the menu proberly belongs to CMainFrame.

To get the app's menu from anywhere do this:

CMenu* pMenu = AfxGetMainWnd()->GetMenu();
ASSERT_VALID(pMenu);
