Hi !!!
 
I've derived from CPropertySheet a class call CSheet, and add page derived from CPropertypage to CSheet ... (a normal Property box initialised form MFC)
 
But i want my Property Box diplayed initially  at the coordinate 0,0  and not in the middle of the screen ... How could i do this ? Please help :)
 
Thanx in advance!

Number of ways to do this:

easiest: in OnInitDialog() of your CSheet(), call MoveWindow() with the appropriate coordinates, in your case (0, 0), which would bethe top left corner of the parent window (you have to remove the WS_CHILD attribute if you want the dialog box to go outside the creating window.). Be sure to do this AFTER the OnInitDialog() of CPropertySheet has been called.
Hope this helps

It isn't possible to reset the position by redefining the PreCreate - CWnd - Function ?
by changing the CRect values ?
If so , how is it possible ?

Like I said, there are a number of ways to do it...I wrote down the simplest that came to mind. But I'm curious why you were getting the exception...

It was because the function MoveWindow takes in parameters  (LPCRECT lpRect, BOOL bRepaint = TRUE) and not a x,y Position as paramters , that' caused a stupid exception when i tried MoveWindow(50,50) :))) !!!
