    Hide the HELP button in MFC CPropertySheet

    Hi,

    How should I hide the HELP button in a MFC based , CPropertSheet (wizard97 style) visual C++ application.

    I'm able to do that in Non-MFC application, but with MFC it's not working.

    Any clues?

    Thanks,

    Try...

    remove the WS_EX_CONTEXTHELP style (in the Create)

    or

    use GetWindowLong() to get the 'ex' styles, remove the WS_EX_CONTEXTHELP and SetWindowLong()

    or

    process WM_HELP msgs (IIRC return TRUE, with out the default processing )

    or if the problem presists

    have you tried using Spy++ (MSVC utility) to find its ID / message....

    You may then be able to track down some docs / write a handler to hide / intercept the message.

    Thanks!

    I found the following in MSDN:

    You can deactivate the Help button capability by modifying m_psh in the property sheet object as follows:

    mySheet.m_psh.dwFlags &= ~(PSH_HASHELP);
