I meet a problem, when I am using VC++6, I want to set my propertysheet's title in the bottom of propertysheet( like vc++ ide's classview, resource view, itc.)
I don't want to use CTabCtrl, then create Dialog as its child control.

Derive a class from CPropertySheet using class wizard, then add a handler for OnInitDialog and change the code to

BOOL YourPropSheet::OnInitDialog()
{
CWnd* pWnd = GetDlgItem(AFX_IDC_TAB_CONTROL);
ASSERT(pWnd);
if (pWnd)
pWnd->ModifyStyle(0, TCS_BOTTOM);
return CPropertySheet::OnInitDialog();
}

Then use YourPropSheet in place of CpropertySheet

CTabCtrl* pTab = GetTabControl()

is probably better than the GetDlgItem(AFX_IDC_TAB_CONTROL) method (which is not officially documented)

Another way is to subclass the tab contorl, then you can take more control of it (eg. use owner-draw for colouring tabs.

yes, this is right, but I have already resolve the problem by myself.
First time I do it look like yours, but I found problem on painting. so I ask questions on the expert-exchange.
but I add the setactivepage(0), it can resolve it. and you haven't this one.
my ways to it:

BOOL CMyPropSheet::OnInitDialog()
{
CPropertySheet::OnInitDialog();
      
CTabCtrl* tab= GetTabControl();                                                          
DWORD dwStyle=::GetWindowLong(tab->m_hWnd,GWL_STYLE);
SetWindowLong(tab->m_hWnd,GWL_STYLE,dwStyle|TCS_BOTTOM);
SetActivePage(0);

}

The painting problem can be resolved by calling the base class after SetWindowLong.
