Using CTabCtrl::HighlightItem()

I am trying to use the CTabCtrl::HighlightItem on my propertysheet. I want the tab on the page that is currently displayed to be highlighted. The problem I am facing is how to detect when a new page is displayed. I need to set highlight to that page and ofcourse also remove the highlight from the previous displayed page. The propertysheet can diaplay different number of pages, so I also need to know how to find out which index the page has. Is it possible? If so how can I do it?

U can use the OnSetActive( ) in ur Propertypage class.
Add OnSetActive() to all the propertypages in ur propertysheet.
This funtion will be called whenever a particular page gets active.
So in this function remove and set the highlight.

Hope this helps U.
