I have inserted a menu in a dialog box, added some ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI in the dialogbox messagemap, wrote the associated CCmdUI handlers, so that some menu items are disabled/enabled depending of the application state.
My CCmdUI handlers are not called, the result is that all menu items stay enabled.
I known that in an standard document/view application, the mainframe calls these CCmdUI handlers during idle time. How to make it work in a dialogbox application ?

Thanks to akalmani for directing me to the right Microsoft page.

"This behavior is by design." said Bill on that page. Amen.

You could always do an SDI based app using a form based view.  There one has the menu/toolbar support automatically.
