Dear malik

heres the piece of code that used to resize property sheet manually

BOOL
CMySheet::OnInitDialog()
{
     CPropertySheet::OnInitDialog();

     // your code goes here

     // Add size to system menu
     CMenu* pSysMenu = GetSystemMenu(FALSE);
     if (pSysMenu != NULL)
     {
          pSysMenu->InsertMenu(
           -1,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,SC_SIZE,"&Size");
     }
     // Add resizable frame
     ::SetWindowLong(m_hWnd,GWL_STYLE,
          GetStyle()|WS_THICKFRAME);
     return TRUE;
}

void
CMySheet::OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy)
{
     CPropertySheet::OnSize(nType, cx, cy);
     CRect r;
     GetClientRect(r);
     if(GetTabControl())
          GetTabControl()->SetWindowPos(NULL,
          0,0,r.Width()-30,r.Height()-30,
          SWP_NOMOVE|SWP_NOZORDER|SWP_NOACTIVATE);
}

you will have to deal with the property pages, the buttons, but this should get you started

Dear Mumtaz

Try this out..Before i proceed since we r using menus..

we r going to put the above code in ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI..that is we r going to
add the above code to appropriate menuhandler function..

Pls include the header file #include <afxpriv.h>

Before that we need to know the ID of the menu that has rised the event ..this is done using

CMenu::GetMenuID() function..this returns the ID of the menu

 In the header add the message function. afx_msg LRESULT OnIdleUpdateCmdUI(WPARAM, LPARAM);
 Add the message map ON_MESSAGE(WM_KICKIDLE, OnKickIdle)
Now we implement the function

LRESULT CMyPropSheet::OnKickIdle(WPARAM, LPARAM)
{
SendMessageToDescendants(WM_WM_KICKIDLE, 0, 0, FALSE, FALSE);
OnSize();//call the functtion that ive given above
return 0;
}

This should help it
