Hi there

When adding a MenuItem to a menu, it stays in
the disabled mode, even though I have followed the instructions
in the tutorial.

any help much appreciated.

btw the Digital Mars CD package is fantastic!

Are you using MFC?
If that is the case you will have to make sure there is an
implementation for the menu ID

    ON_COMMAND ( <your menu id>, <Member function> )

and of course a <Member function>

Your right , that was the problem.

For some reason, when I add the "command" while
doing the tutorial files I get an error :

"failed to rename file"

and the "ON_COMMAND" is
not added to the file.

It works fine if I make my own GUI though.

Thanks
        Phill.
