How do I enable menus items all the time

Hello,

I have a problem with the menu system. I have a menu handler
in my view class which brings up a dialog box. I am drawing an object to the viewport which I can rotate with the mouse.  Although I have added an update handler     pCmdUI->Enable(TRUE);
the menu item does not work until I move the object with the
mouse.

Also, the print and print preview are grayed out until I move the object. I would like all of these menu items always enabled.

The view is part of a splitter pane with a formview dialog
as a control bar in the other pane.

If anyone knows of a fix I would greatly appreciate the help.

Thanks in advance,

Joe

The problem is you have 2 views.  

Each view can have different menu enabling logic.  When the view without the menu updating stuff is the active view, it gets asked whether to enable the menus or not (and you don't have code in the 2nd view).

To fix:
EITHER
- put menu updating logic into both views
OR
- put menu updating logic into the document
