I am trying to figure out how to add functionality to my menu resource in VS2010 and I am not sure how to program it so when the user clicks 'New' it will display a dialog box. I know if I use the following code I can generate a message box.
<pre lang="cs">void MFC_Tutorial_Window::OnFileNew()
    MessageBox("Clicked File->New");

Will the same type of thing work for a dialog box and DoModal?

Try it. Then submit your question if you still have one.

When a menu item is clicked your program will receive a WM_COMMAND message with parameters that identifies which menu item was selected. What you do at that point can be anything from showing a MessageBox(), as you did here, to anything that your imagination can conjure up.
