I have a static splitter window which contains a CFormView-derived class in one pane.  I want to create a property sheet on this view so that it completely fills the pane by default.    I would also like to resize the property sheet if the window or pane is enlarged so that it still fills the available space.

Here's what I did when I had exactly the same problem:

In the CFormView derieved class declaration I have:

class CSheetView : public CFormView
{
..
public:
  CPropertySheet* m_pPropSheet;
.
  virtual void OnInitialUpdate();
.
  afx_msg void OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy);
.
protected:
  void SizeWindows();
  void SizePage(CPropertyPage *pPage);
};

The implementation of these functions follows:

void CSheetView::OnInitialUpdate()
{
  ...    
  m_pPropSheet = new CPropertySheet("Property sheet", this);
  m_pPage1 = new CPage1;
  m_pPage2 = new CPage2;
 
  m_pPropSheet->AddPage(m_pPage1);
  m_pPropSheet->AddPage(m_pPage2);
  m_pPropSheet->Create(this, WS_CHILD, WS_EX_STATICEDGE);
  SizeWindows();
  m_pPropSheet->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
  ...
  CFormView::OnInitialUpdate();
}

//And here is the CSheetView::SizeWindows()implementation:

void CSheetView::SizeWindows()
{
  CRect rect, parentClientRect;
  CPropertyPage* p;
  CTabCtrl* pTab;

  if(m_pPropSheet)
  {
    GetClientRect(parentClientRect);
    parentClientRect.InflateRect(-1, -1);

    // Resize the parent window
    m_pPropSheet->MoveWindow(parentClientRect);

    // Resize the Tab control
    pTab = m_pPropSheet->GetTabControl();
    pTab->GetWindowRect(rect);
    m_pPropSheet->ScreenToClient(rect);
    rect.right = parentClientRect.right - 1;
    rect.bottom = parentClientRect.bottom - 1;
    pTab->MoveWindow(rect);

    // Resize the active page
    SizePage(m_pPropSheet->GetActivePage());
  }
}

//Here comes CSheetView::SizePage() function:

void CSheetView::SizePage(CPropertyPage *pPage)
{
  if(!pPage)
    return;
 
  CRect rect, parentRect;
  CWnd* pParent = pPage->GetParent();
  pParent->GetClientRect(parentRect);
  pPage->GetWindowRect(rect);
  pParent->ScreenToClient(rect);
  rect.right = parentRect.right - 5;
  rect.bottom = parentRect.bottom - 5;
  pPage->MoveWindow(rect);
}

// And finally call the SizeWindows() function in the WM_SIZE
// handler of the view
void CSheetView::OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy)
{
  SizeWindows();
  CFormView::OnSize(nType, cx, cy);
}
