About CPropertySheet, CPropertyPage and CTabCtrl

I have created a propertySheet with 3 propertyPages :

 CMyPropertySheet MySheet("Test sheet");
 CMyPage1         Page1;
 CMyPage2         Page2;
 CMyPage3         Page3;

 MySheet.AddPage(&Page1);
 MySheet.AddPage(&Page2);
 MySheet.AddPage(&Page3);

My question is :

- How can I subclass the CTabCtrl returned by MySheet.GetTabControl()
  to my class : CMyTabCtrl. Because I want to use owner draw the
  Tab control associated with my PropertySheet and that all messages
  are received by my class.

  I have try do to this in CMyPropertySheet :
 
  BOOL CMyPropertySheet::OnInitDialog()
   {
    CMyTabCtrl *pTab = (CMyTabCtrl *)GetTabControl();

    SubclassWindow(pTab->m_hWnd); //--> Assertion fail, Why ?

    return CPropertySheet::OnInitDialog();
   }
 

- I want to use owner draw because I want that some tab controls
  are disabled (text in gray).

- Is there a different solution to do this ?

- Can some one send my a sample that made something like this
  at tech@gerelec.com

                              Thanks,
                              MIKE

Yuo msitake is that you are trying to sunclass tab control by property sheet. Do the following. Derive class from CTabCtrl and add member variable of this type to your Property sheet class declaration( say m_YourTabCtrl). The call
m_YourTabCtrl->SubclassWindow(GetTabControl()->GetSfeHwnd());

I dont think this will work either! There seems to be a problem during the evaluation of GetTabControl(). There's an unhandled exception  then.

I specially built project to check it. It works!. Follow the my steps to subclass property sheet tab control.

1.Derive you property sheet class from MFC CPropertySheet. You called it CMyPropertySheet.

2.Derive class from CTabCtrl say CSubclassedTabCtrl and add member variable of such a class to your property sheet class
CSubclassedTabCtrl m_SubclassedTabCtrl.

2.Overwrite CMyPropertySheet OnInitDialog function. That's you did. Add the following code

CTabCtrl *pTabCtrl = GetTabControl();
ASSERT(pTabCtrl);
m_SubclassedTabCtrl.SubclassWindow(pTabCtrl->m_hWnd);

Now you can add whatever message handlers to CSubclassedTabCtrl class and handle tab control messages in this class.

I have try this, and it works but only some messages are handled by the CSubclassedTabCtrl class
--> DefWindowProc, PreTranslateMessage, ...
but WM_DRAWITEM, WM_MEASUREITEM, WM_CTLCOLOR, ... never arrive in this new class. Why ?
What can I do for handling this messages in this class ?
