Changing captions on the CPropertyPage tab...

How does one go about setting the tab caption for a derived CPropertyPage that is being used in a CPropertySheet. I know the initial caption can be set in the resource editor when designing the dialog for the property page, but I would like to change the caption dynamically on the fly.

I am assuming to use the CWnd::SetWindowText for the property page, but not sure where to handle this. I have tried setting it in the CPropertySheet OnInitDialog handler, but the property page windows have not yet been created, thus calling the SetWindowText errors with a null window handle.

class CCPage1 : public CPropertyPage
{
...
};

class CCPage2 : public CPropertyPage
{
...
};

class CMyPSheet : public CPropertySheet
{
public:
      // would like create multiple CCpage1 style property pages
    CCPage1 m_page1[2];
    CCPage2 m_page2;

...
};

...

CMyPSheet psheet;

if (psheet.DoModal() == IDOK)
{
   ...
}

...

At some point, I need to set the tab caption for m_page1[0] and m_page1[1].

  i.e.  m_page1[0].SetWindowText("Tab One");
        m_page1[1].SetWindowText("Tab Two");

Thanks for any advice,

Don ...

SetWindowText wil not do it - this is bause there are two things here - the property page is displayed without a caption, so setting window text has no effect.  The tab text is in the tab control (which owns the actual page).  When created, the tab gets its text from the property page windows text, but after that they are not linked.  You have to explicitly tell the tab to change.

This is how to do it,,,

TC_ITEM tcItem;
tcItem.mask = TCIF_TEXT;
tcItem.pszText = "your new caption";
GetTabControl()->SetItem(x, &tcItem );

where x is the tab number.
