You can achieve that using 'CMenu::CheckMenuItem()'

You'll have to obtain the meu handle for your window first:

CMenu *pmenu = AfxGetMainWnd()->GetMenu();

pmenu->CheckMenuItem ( ID_CONNECTIONS, MF_BYCOMMAND | MF_CHECKED); // to check the item

pmenu->CheckMenuItem ( ID_CONNECTIONS, MF_BYCOMMAND | MF_UNCHECKED); // to uncheck the item

Hi!
1. open wizard dialog (Ctrl+W)
2. select your frame class in the second combobox.
 select in the left list ID_CONNECTIONS.
Double click in the right list on the UPDATE_COMMAND_UI item
3.Press OK in the appeared dialog.
4. double click on the added item in the bottom list.
5. In the editor window:
void CMainFrame::OnConnectionsUpdate(CCmdUI* pCmdUI)
{
    pCmdUI->SetCheck(bCheck); // this code sets or remove check in the menu depending on bCheck value
}
