The framework calls this member function when an application changes the enabled state of the CWnd object.

afx_msg void OnEnable( 
   BOOL bEnable  


Specifies whether the CWnd object has been enabled or disabled. This parameter is TRUE if the CWnd has been enabled; it is FALSE if the CWnd has been disabled.

OnEnable is called before the EnableWindow member function returns, but after the window enabled state (WS_DISABLED style bit) has changed.


This member function is called by the framework to allow your application to handle a Windows message. The parameters passed to your function reflect the parameters received by the framework when the message was received. If you call the base-class implementation of this function, that implementation will use the parameters originally passed with the message and not the parameters you supply to the function.
