How to make resizable PropertySheet?

I'm using MFC, and trying to make a subclass of CPropertySheet that is resizable.  I've tried to override CWnd::PreCreateWindow(), but it isn't called.  I can catch WM_NCCREATE using the message map and OR in WS_THICKFRAME to the window style, but that seems to be ignored.  Does anyone know how to do this?

have a look at NSViews .. this is shareware.  It gives you resizable property sheets, dialogs, views etc.

Also look at www.codeguru.com

Although I'm not using NSViews directly, their code contained the secret incantation I was looking for, which I append here for posterity.  Thanks NanoSoft!!!

int CNSFlexPropertySheet::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
   if (CPropertySheet::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
      return -1;

    LONG lSTYLE = GetWindowLong(m_hWnd,GWL_STYLE);
    LONG lEXSTYLE = GetWindowLong(m_hWnd,GWL_EXSTYLE);

    if ((lSTYLE & DS_MODALFRAME) == DS_MODALFRAME)
    {
        lSTYLE &= ~(LONG)DS_MODALFRAME;
        lSTYLE |= WS_THICKFRAME;
      SetWindowLong(m_hWnd,GWL_STYLE,lSTYLE);
    }

    if ((lEXSTYLE & WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME) == WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME)
    {
        lEXSTYLE &= ~(DWORD)WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME;
      SetWindowLong(m_hWnd,GWL_EXSTYLE,lEXSTYLE);
    }
   else
   {
        lEXSTYLE |= (DWORD)WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE;
      SetWindowLong(m_hWnd,GWL_EXSTYLE,lEXSTYLE);
   }

   return 0;
}
