How do I add controls (CButton) to a CPropertySheet?

I have a CProperySheet derived object to which I need to add four buttons.  I do not know how to do this, but I am trying to do the following in OnCreate:

int COptionSheet::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
#define BUTTON_WIDTH      50
#define BUTTON_HEIGHT      22
#define BUTTON_SPACE      10

if (CPropertySheet::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
   return -1;

// TODO: Add your specialized creation code here
LPRECT lpRect;
// Get window size
GetWindowRect( lpRect );
// expand it by 150 to the right so I can add some boxes
// for statistics later
lpRect->right += 150;
// Resize the window
MoveWindow( lpRect );

// pAddButton is of type CButton * and is a public data member of COptionSheet
pAddButton = new CButton();
LPCTSTR lpszAddCaption = "Add";
CRect pAddRect;
// define a button size
pAddRect.left = 20;
pAddRect.right = pAddRect.left + BUTTON_WIDTH;
pAddRect.top = 360;
pAddRect.bottom = pAddRect.top + BUTTON_HEIGHT;                                                             
// create button
  BOOL bReturn = pAddButton->Create(lpszAddCaption,                                 WS_VISIBLE|BS_PUSHBUTTON,                                                       pAddRect, this, IDC_ADD_RADOBJECT);                        
}
Problems:
First I get an 0xC0000005 Access viloation when I call GetWindowRect( lpRect ); at the top of this function.

Second, how do I set the font of the text on my buttons to be the same as the default Ok/Cancel/Apply buttons on the CPropertySheet and what is the default text.

Is the method for adding other controls (static text, list box etc) the same as for adding a button?

Here's the Access Violation problem...
LPRECT lpRect;    // This is the same as RECT *lpRect; Just a pointer, NO STORAGE. Probably pointer to NULL
// Get window size
GetWindowRect( lpRect );  //Tries to access NULL Pointer

Change this to
RECT aRect;
LPRECT lpRect=&aRect;
// Get window size
GetWindowRect( lpRect );
as an easy fix.

Second (sigh) Question:
Get the font used by the dialog (Get the CDC using GetDC(), then GetCurrentFont(...) ),  turn
off the font's bold attribute as follows:
Get a filled in LOGFONT structure via GetLogFont(...),
optionally adjust LOGFONT's lfWeight to 400, create a new CFont object initialize it using CreateFontIndirect with the LOGFONT structure
Select the font into the button's CDC by using SelectObject(...)
