I would like to override the default placement of a propertypage on a propertysheet.

(I want some buttons above the Tab section).

Is there an easy way to do this?

You can move down a propertysheet with all pages.

Hi kamarey,

I don't understand your comment.  I understand the words but I don't know what you are saying.  Please expand.

I have used the following 3 lines in the OnInitDialog of my property sheet class
to create a space under the property pages for buttons.
BOOL CHVAC_UI::OnInitDialog()
     CRect windowRect;
     GetWindowRect( &windowRect );
     windowRect.bottom += 80;
     MoveWindow( &windowRect, TRUE );

Thanks pcj0961, I can do that already.  
I am looking for a simple method to move the pages (and TabCtrl) lower on the sheet to provide space above the Tabs.  I may have to adopt a method akin to that and a customised CPropertySheet based class.

I hoped someone had a solution available.
