Please help me with the following problem.

I have a pop-up menu which will pop-up only when i right-click on a tree item.

I know to enable and disable a menu item that belong to CMainFrame :-
pCmdUI->Enable(TRUE);
coz' the menu item is belong to that class.

Since the pop-up menu is standalone, and it does not belong to any class, so how do I enable and disable a menu item that is a pop-up menu?

Please help me. Thank you to those who is/are willing to help me.

Hi,

I do beleive you have to add message handlers on any window
that the pop up acts upon... In you case since its a tree it could
be the MainFrame I guess...
like this
ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI(ID_POPUP_CMD1, OnUpdatePopCMD1)
and of course
ON_COMMAND(ID_POPUP_CMD1, OnPopCMD1)

If many different windows can receive your pop up commands
(like if it has a Copy for instance) each will have to handle the
message and can separatly activate or not the option. That's how
some windows can add or alter the popup at will... Like if some
item in your tree have different option on the popup
