Wizard as main window of application

Posted on 2000-02-15
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.

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?

Instead of calling the CMyAppDialog in the initinstance, you call your wizard sheet. Simple..That is if you have derived a class from CPropertySheet and added all the pages to it.why are you so inclined on changing the CDialog derivative..??
