I have a CPropertySheet that contains several CPropertyPage instances. The labels of each tab are defined in my resource file. I need to change the label of one of the tabs at runtime. How do I do this?

thanks
Paul

The constructors for CPropertyPage all take a resource id of a string to use in the tab. You can have your derived class constructors pass that id along to the CProprtyPage constructor. This id can be calculated at runtime.

      CString s("Hello world");
      TCITEM tabItem;
      tabItem.mask = TCIF_TEXT;

      tabItem.pszText = s.GetBuffer(0);
      pSheet->GetTabControl()->SetItem(2, &tabItem);  /pSheet is a pointer to your property sheet, this changes the text of the third tab - zero based indexing

AndyAinscow : would I place that code within my property sheet or within the page whose tab I need to change?
