    WinApi - Property Sheets

    Note: Property Sheets(say ps)

    I have seen examples in CodeGuru(Propert Sheet in Dialog article) with MFC. Those examples can create Property Sheets in a dialog or formview as child controls. Surely, somebody(s) here was(were) tried that himself/herself too. Whatsoever, I tried to do this in WinApi. Unfortunatly couldn't yet. In fact, not sure, is it possible via APIs. Is anybody tried? Or at least, may say that is possible(and not too hard). Or (many or...), can I designate Property Sheet(ps) window properties, such WS_CHILD etc. Since, ::Create method has ability to give such properties to ps etc.
    In fact, I created a form and a child frame, as run time. Then designate the ps as modeless and set the frame as parent to ps. At last, I have a ps in that frame(place holder) like child control(or picture). But, I failed to;

    1. tabbing through ps and also other controls outside the ps(on main form controls).
    2. slip out the ps header and borders.

    Is this possible? Or anybody seen an example anywhere?

    Here is an example I downloaded a while ago. I never got around to learning how it works exactly, but I have attached the zip for you to see.

    Unfortunatly that source codes, doesn't fit my needs. Now I can hide (modeless)propsheet's header bar. But I already couldn't tab-stop propsheet to main form. This is hardest part. Because, propsheet is already not a control(child), just seems so. Does anybody know a trick(or tweak), can be tab-stop through (modeless)propsheet to main form, than back etc.

    In this code, many of the portions are belongs to BCX(Basic to C) programs sample. I changed, added and removed
    some of the parts. This code successfully compiles via LCC-win32 compiler. If somebody interests and solves
    some problems, please inform me. (vkdemir@yahoo.com)
    problems:
    The propsheet is seems like a child control but not really a child. If compile, you can see that
    if propsheet has focused, tab-stops can not back to main form controls. Both propseet and main form must has
    the same message queue etc. Clearly, my goal was designing the propsheet like a TabControl on the form(or dialog).
    Right now only seems so but not really.

    (btw, I know how to create and use tabcontrol, this is a different goal)

    Have a nice day.
