I have a propertyPage and I put a "Button" on it and I also implement
function: OnButton(), when I click this button, it should
popup another dialog, but there is nothing happens when it is clicked.
When I put the MessageBox at first line of this function, when I click
the "Button", still there is no any reaction, how to get command message
when you click button on propertyPage? Urgent!!

If you are using MFC then you can do this.. Delete what you have then go to the class wizard.
Select the class that has the button.
Go to Message Maps tab.
In Object ID's select the button ID.
Click on the message you wand to add.
Click on the Add Function Button.

That will do it.

If you arent using MFC, or you want to hand add the handlers do this.

in the .h of the class that has the button add this to the protected section.

afx_msg void OnMyFunction();

then in the .c/.cpp

In the property Page the BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP will have CPropertyPage of course.  The code works the same.
