CWindowImpl problem - URGENT

Hi, I'm trying to implement CWindowImpl on my class CMenus, here is a simplified declaration:

CMenus: ..., public CWindowImpl<CMenus> {
BEGIN_MSG_MAP(CMenus)
  MESSAGE_HANDLER(WM_MEASUREITEM, OnMeasureItem)
END_MSG_MAP

LRESULT OnMeasureItem(UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, BOOL& bHandled)
{
  // TODO : Add Code for message handler. Call    
     DefWindowProc if necessary.
  return 0;
}

This code gives me the error "fatal error C1075: end of file found before the left brace '{' at 'c:\dev\menus\menus.h(28)' was matched"

menus.h(28) is the line
BEGIN_MSG_MAP(CMenus)

What am I doing wrong here? If I don't get this right ASAP, I'm going to have to implement subclassing myself, and I'd rather use the ATL implementation.

The code you have posted here needs an additional right brace on the last line - you open braces for the class definition on line 1 but never close again.  

If this is not the correct answer, can you post the full code?

menus.h(28) is the line
BEGIN_MSG_MAP(CMenus)

>>> Something has gone wrong before that line , it can't be the right brace that you are missing on the last line in the post.

C1075: The compiler expected to find a matching brace before it reached the end of your source file but was unable to. Check whether your open brackets (and other paired characters such as curly braces) match with close brackets.

I don't think the problem is actually unmatched braces. If I take out the CWindomImpl<CMenus> inheritance, and remove the MSG_MAP the program compiles perfectly.

Just spotted another typo.  Try putting

END_MSG_MAP()  // i.e. with brackets

If it is not the brace at the end of the class, then it suggests that one of the two braces opened by the BEGIN_MSG_MAP(class) macro have not been closed.
