I have an app that has two splitter windows, one embedded inside the other so that three different views are visible at any given time. I noticed that my menu handlers and update handlers will only function corectly when I have given focus to the view that is supposed to handle them. For example, if I want view 1 to handle menu item 1 and update handler 1, I have to make sure view 1 has focus. If either view 2 or 3 has focus the handler and update handler do not respond. Is there a way to make this application know which view has a handler and update handler for each menu ID? Is this a command routing issue? The commands don't seem to get routed to all of the views.
