What do you mean by
>>implement property sheets in an MDI
Do you mean using property sheets in an MDI app which uses CFormView?
What is exactly your problem with property sheets?

Hi thirumaran !
I still not understand your problem !
I've just created a project in which I use an MDI app with CFormView. In My View I have a button which loads a property sheet with three property pages in it. It works fine !

We 've got 2 ways to work now :

1) you give me your e-mail adress and I post you my sample project so that you can compare your code with mine and see differences.

2)you show me your code in your next comment (the part in which problem occurs will do!). Well, in this case you should explain your problem better. Give me more details : what doesn't works exactly ?

What do you prefer ?

Well I don't feel like the point from which I construct and load the property sheet is really important. If it works from a button, it has to work as well anywhere else in the view (if it was correctly initialized before being considered as the parent for your property sheet).

I' ve just posted the code.
Hope you will find what does not work with yours !
Let me know if you need more help.
