Is there a way to make the SetCheck() and Enable() functions work with dialog application menus? And if so, how?  I can get SetCheck to work with SDI applications.  Using the UPDATE COMMAND UI choice to make a function.  With a dialog appliction, it does not work!  The function is being called, I checked it with a MessageBox from inside the funtion.  I'm using VC++ 6.0.

GetDlgItem(MY_DLG_ITEM)->EnableWindow(FALSE);
GetDlgItem(MY_DLG_ITEM)->EnableWindow(TRUE);
GetDlgItem(MY_DLG_ITEM)->SetCheck(FALSE);
GetDlgItem(MY_DLG_ITEM)->SetCheck(TRUE);

This may work with control buttons but does not work with menus on dialog boxes.
