In my program I must do something when do paste or cut in Editview.

But I found When Right mouse click in the view, it will show a pop menu which is not my menu. In the pop menu,it can paste and cut too! I can not detect the paste and cut event from the menu.

How can I get the event from the pop menu.

Use pretranslate message

BOOL CMyDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
   if ((GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetSafeHwnd() == pMsg->hwnd) &&     
        ((pMsg->message == WM_COPY) || (pMsg->message == WM_PASTE) )
         // Do you stuff here
         return TRUE; //don't process
        // it's either not our box or another message...
        return CDialog::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
