It's just a CWinApp derived obj that calls DoModal on the property
sheet. Created with the wizard as a dialog app then converted to prop
If the property sheet is the main window of your app, then you will
need a hidden main window that has the propertysheet as a child, and
all the child modeless dialog will have to have the propertysheet's
parent as their parent.
Ok cool. I was thinking that but not yet sure how to go about it. But
that helps. I suppose I could make the propertysheet modeless and put
the CWinApp in a message loop?
No, that's not what I said, I said you need a hidden window as the main
window. The property sheet can be modal if it wants to be, but it needs
to be a child of the hidden window. And the child windows of the proprty
sheet also need to have the hidden window as their parent.
I didn't say anything about making propertysheet modeless or a messsage
for simplicity I create a dlg that's hidden. You can create a CWnd if you
m_pMainWnd = &dlg;
INT_PTR nResponse = dlg.DoModal();
Then in your propretysheet
if you are creating it from the propetypage
