This is my first Mac OS X Cocoa application. I am trying to create a menu item that will grab information from a document window, do something with that info, and then close the window.


MessageDocument is an NSDocument subclass.

I added the method "- (IBAction)deliverTheMail:(id)pId" to MessageDoucment


I created the Menu item and sent the action "deliverTheMail" to the First Responder.


The problem I'm running into is that even after I create a MessageDocument window the menu item never becomes enabled. Shouldn't the NSDocument be in the responder chain?


Am I even taking the right approach here? And if so why isn't it working?
