Hello , i know its a stupid question but i tried all i could find in the net and it didn't help me so i hope someone from you guys would.
So my problem is that i have a class which inherits CFrameWnd . I have in this project one Accelerator table which is loaded in the OnCreate Function. I wanted to add new key shortcut (Ctrl + C) and a handle for it.
So i made a function
afx_msg void OnEditCopy();

i called
into the Message map. And when i put breakpoint into the function definition it never entered in there.
So i tried removing the accelerator's entry for the shortcut and tried with OnChar and WM_CHAR but even there the program didn't stop in the function. The problem is that the rest of the entries in the Accelerator's Table work just fine, but when i add enter mine it doesn't.

Any help / ideas why it doesn't help will be welcome :)

Does having the focus placed on different controls change anything? E.g. if you have a button, an edit, a checkbox, if you put the focus on the button and hit your hot key, then to the edit, then to the checbox...does it make any difference?

i tried clicking everywhere and clicking the shortcut nothing changed :(
Before few secs i tried with PreTranslateMessage and for my big surprise it worked . But i dont want to make it with this function but with Accelerator's Table. Isn't it strange ? with PreTranslateMessage works but not with WM_CHAR or accelerator *wondering*

If you assign that same ID to another key combination, like Ctrl+D or somesuch, does it work then?

no :( i even tried to change some of the already assigned combinations that didn't work too

My guess -without seeing the code- is then that your message handler might be wrong or misplaced. You say other shortcut keys work fine, are they handled the very same way as this one and at the very same message map as this one?

well the project is little bit big(only 9k lines the main frame :P) but yes i am sure that i am using the right message map (you cant miss it)
Well i guess i have to leave it in PreTranslateMessage :( Atleast that way it works .
Thx to everyone for your help

you missed to include the command in the message map, so the message wont run in your class. Is the key in your accelerator table?

Some information:[^]

i didn't miss to add the command in the message map and yes the key was in my accelerator's table
