ON_COMMAND lets you handle a menu message, and there by it enables the menu
item, to control the menu item's appearance you would need to use
ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI, I'm assuming that's what you meant by COMMAND_UI.

Anyway, in your case you should use ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI_RANGE with the
range of id that you will be assigning to your menu items. There is also a
ON_COMMAND_RANGE for handling the menu items messages.

Hi all,

I know I have to use ON_COMMAND and ON_COMMAND_UI for general command
processing but what about a scenario I have whereby the contents of a menu
aren't known at compile time? The menu is built up with a small number of
items at runtime from an external object and have command IDs beginning at
say 10000 incrementing by 1.

How would I go about command enabling/disabling/processing when clicked
for this in MFC? Ideally I would like my main frame to process these
