TPropertySheet as TFrameWindow client

I am trying to determine 2 things about the TPropertySheet class:

1. Is it possible to use a TPropertySheet as the client window of TFrameWindow? My program bombs if I try to do it.

2. Is there any way to override the window type characteristics of TPropertySheet? I can't seem to be able to have a TPropertySheet that is sizable or that stays within it's parent window. I wish to have a TPropertySheet window that is maximized within the TFrameWindow - is this possible? Please provide a detailed explanation if possible.

Thanks.

I don't have a complete answer, so I'll only put this in a comment. :-) I've tried using the property sheet as the client of a TFrameWindow, and it didn't work for me either. I've seen an example of somebody who has worked around it. They created a frame window, then in the SetupWindow() function, the window sent a message to itself to create the property sheet. A response function was then written to create the property sheet, almost as if it were a dialog box. Hope this helps a bit.

As I understand the TPropertySheet class it uses the Windows property sheet under Windows 95/NT4. This may cause some problem when you want to use it as your TFrameWindow. This is because the windows API function for property sheets is called. And this does not function the same way as creating a window. You don't get a windows handle, you have no way to set attributes like sizable. But there may be a way to send info to the main window from the callback function supplied to PropertySheet(). So may guess is to studdy the Windows API function PropertySheet() and see if there is a way to 'hook' this window into you main windows. Another way is to build your own TPropertySheet class that uses TTabControl to get the look of a property sheet.
