Trouble on Commnd Status

Dear Master-hands,

I met such troubles in my code.

I registered a menustrip item and a toolstrip item as the invokers of a command, then change the command's status at runtime just like that in CommanQuickStart. But what was abnormal is that even when I've set the status to unavailable or disable, the 2 items still seem to be active, but trigger nothing when you click it.

I checked my code and ensure that I've registered the invokers before any attempt to update the status. Judging from the symptom, I also check that none of the command handlers are triggered. So could anybody tell me why the 2 items could be shown in active mode?

Btw, I've tried to restart Windows and it went well for some time, but later, it was back....

Greatly appreciate your help...

checkout, if the ToolStripCommandAdaper is registered on startup.
Normaly this is done in class WindowsFormsApplication of CompositeUI.WinForms.

Check if you may have overriden the AfterShellCreated() method, and forgot to call the base implementation of WindowsFormsApplication...

There can obviousliy more adapters handeling the CommandState for UIExtension-Items, so you should have a look, which one you need ...

Kind Regards
