I want my MDI application to be notified when there is a change in clipboard, I can make it to work in a dialog by using
SetClipboardViewer() in the OnInitDialog() and map ON_MESSAGE(WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD,MyFunction)

void MyFunction()
{
 do what ever I want to do when there is a change in clipboard
}

Can anyone tell me how to do it in MDI ??
Thanks guys

Let me answer this simple question...
you are approaching this question correctly, you should call WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD instead of ON_MESSAGE
Use OnDrawClipboard function, it's provided by CWnd class.

Call the SetClipboardViewer in OnCreate function... this should settle it...
if you need more information don't hesitate to contact me...hiap_ho@hotmail.com
