    [RESOLVED] Property Sheets on the main dialog

    I have been playing around with property sheets/property pages and have been successful in getting them to work in a secondary dialog by calling the property sheet using DoModal().
    I cannot figure out how to get the property sheet to display on the main dialog of a dialog application.
    I am using VS2008 and CMFCPropertySheet and CMFCPropertyPage.

    Did you try Create instead of DoModal?

    Yes I tried this in the OnInitDialog()

    Code:
    // TODO: Add extra initialization here
    	m_dlgMainSheet.AddPage(&m_PageOne);
    	m_dlgMainSheet.AddPage(&m_PageTwo);
    
    	m_dlgMainSheet.Create(this, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 0);
    	m_dlgMainSheet.ModifyStyleEx (0, WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT);
    	m_dlgMainSheet.ModifyStyle( 0, WS_TABSTOP );
    Where m_dlgMainSheet is a CMFCPropertySheet declared in the main dialog header file.
    I keep getting a "A required resource is not available" message when I start the app.

    In the InitInstance method of app class, replace the default dialog with your propertysheet and call DoModal();

    You always can debug Create call and see what happens under the hood. But afraid property sheet was not designed to be a child window.

    Yep that's the ticket, thanks Arjay.
