To disable an item on a menu, use something like the following:

GetMenu ()->EnableMenuItem (ITEM_ON_MENU_YOU_WANT_DISABLED, MF_GRAYED);

You can put that code anywhere in your view class that you want it disabled.  Note that you can do a great deal of menu manipulation using the GetMenu ()->EnableMenuItem pair.  You might consider looking those functions up in the help as they can allow a great deal of flexibility.

If you have any further questions regarding this, please feel free to ask.  Thanks!
