Hi,
how I can receive and work with the TAB change event in CPRopertySheet?
I need to know when and what PropertyPage the user selected.

Hi Ocrana,

the tab control should send a TCN_SELCHANGE notification message to its parent.

To handle it within a CPropertySheet you have to derive a class from CPropertySheet (if you didn't already) and override it's OnNotify method as i.e. shown at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/151662/en-us

Hope that helps,

An alternative is to handle the WM_ACTIVATE message in your tabbed dialog classes.

You could subclass the underlying tab control that the property sheet uses to a derived class of your own.  I've done the same to implement 'disabled' pages.

I followed the suggestion but I think it is the most complicated one.
