Hi all.

I'm developing a video player app using DirectX 8 SDK. I build the filter graph and play the video file, or the stream if the source is a device, but I'm having some kind of problems with the look-and-feel of the app. Each of the filters of a graph has a property sheet, and it is easy to display using :


But it displays a modaless standalone dialog and I don't like it very much. I would like to embed those property sheets in my custom dialogs.

Any idea ?! . Thx

There is article about creating modeless PropertySheetFrame in the MSDN:
IMHO It is not so difficult make changes attach modeless dialog as child in the another window.
If you found any troubles let me know.
