Very simple question

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...
