Removing ok cancel apply button in property sheet

I have a property sheet which has two tabs derived from CPropertySheet.At the bottom of this dialog i have the default ok,cancel and apply button.I don't want these default buttons,but i want to use the page dialog button to control.How can it be done

you can get rid of the apply button using PSH_NOAPPLYNOW see

or in your OnCreate of you sheet you can use GetDlgItem/ShowWindow(FALSE);

eg for apply

CWnd* pApplyButton = GetDlgItem (ID_APPLY_NOW);
   ASSERT (pApplyButton);
   pApplyButton->ShowWindow (SW_HIDE);

the ID for OK and CANCEL are IDOK and IDCANCEL

by the way I assume you pages are CPropertyPage derived not CPropertySheet
Hi ShaunWilde,  
Please don't lock questions.  Just post comments like everybody else.  Thanks!

Hi gymsam,
If you Create a modeless CPropertySheet, none of the buttons appear at the bottom.  Then in the propety pages, you can call the CPropertySheet::PressButton() to get the effect of pressing these buttons that are not available.

But what you propose is non-standard UI.  People expect to see [Close] and [OK] at the bottom of a property sheet.  Why do you want to confuse them?

Anyway, you will need to put OK and Cancel buttons on each property page or else people will get *really* confused.

Hi Dan - actually since I thought it was an answer - then I am under the impression that it was okay to lock

What you say is right,but in my case i just display text in listbox of the page,the user can use x button on the top right conner of the window.

Mr.ShaunWilde comment is also right.So both of you are right.
