Wizard as main window of application

davev asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-20
How do I go about using the MFC AppWizard to create a dialog application where this main window dialog is a wizard? Is it enough to change:

CMyAppDlg : public CDialog to CMyAppDlg : public CPropertySheet as well as changing CDialog to CPropertySheet in ctors and message maps? Any guidance on this or sources of sample code is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Watch Question

There is a seperate Dialog based application option during the creation of the new project .go through it


I know there is a dialog based option, but the resulting code is derived from CDialog, which is not a wizard by default. So the question remains: Can I simply change all derivations from CDialog to CPropertySheet in all the generated code?

I am interested in knowing this
