Handle OnInitDialog and


BOOL CMySheet::OnInitDialog()
{
     CPropertySheet::OnInitDialog();
     
     
     
     RECT rc;
     GetWindowRect (&rc);
     
     rc.bottom += 40;
     
     MoveWindow (rc.left, rc.top, rc.right-rc.left, rc.bottom-rc.top);
     
     ScreenToClient (&rc);
     
     m_button.Create ("Press me",
          WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_TABSTOP,
          CRect (5, rc.bottom-35, 80, rc.bottom-10),
          this, 1000);
     
     return TRUE;  // return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control
     // EXCEPTION: OCX Property Pages should return FALSE
}

you may need to move the message filter for your property sheet class to dialog

You can also embed the propsheet in a frame (I asked for that 2 weeks ago ...)

There is an example of adding buttons to a modeless Dialog at the microsoft MSDN (look online(!) for CWaitDialog).  The method is equal for a property sheet.
