Handle ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI for all the items - Cut, Copy and Paste i.e. ID_EDIT_CUT, ID_EDIT_COPY and ID_EDIT_PASTE in the form view.
BTW, how do you use Cut, Copy and Paste in the form view?

i can click them on the menu thats not the problem.

the problem is that if for example i am selecting some text from an edit box and using ctrl+c or selecting copt from the edit menu or the copy icon the copy function aint working.

what should i do?

These items in the Edit menu are for the Edit view. For the edit control in the form you need to use the pop-up menu shown on right click.
