Activating pop-up menu in an ActiveX Control?

I have a pop-up menu assigned to the right button of the mouse. The problem I faced is that the menu are all disabled and I couldn't use the mouse to do any selection. I tried to use EnableMenuItem to enable the items in the pop-up menu but it still didn't enable it. Can anyone please help me with this.
And also in which function should my command be assigned? Because in CWnd, I would place my command in the On_Command function. But in the ActiveX program, I can't seem to utilise the On_OcmCommand in the function.

If you're using Visual C++ 4.1 or higher...
.open your menu in the resource view (as if you were going to modify it).  Enter the class wizard.  It'll ask you if you want to create a new class or link it to an existing one.  Link it to your class file where your control lives.  Make sure it follows the AFX macros structure (the //{{AFX_MSG() and all those wizard-like things) before you do this.  It should hook it up for you (that is, hook up the proper command routing).  Then its just like doing regular MFC. (ON_COMMAND(x, f)...)

Visual C++, MFC 4.2 note:
Are you just intercepting the WM_RBUTTON message?  If keyboard jocks are hitting the context menu key...intercept WM_CONTEXT...that'll take care of any input way they want. Rbutton, keyboard clicks, etc.

My pop-up menu is created in the program itself upon right mouse click. So I can't open the menu in the resource view or go into the class wizard for the menu.
