Hello,
I use a custom CProperySheet to catch the Tab SelChange Message. Eerything no problem, but how can I bypass it to the parent CDialog? I use attached code in the sublcass CPropertySheet.
Do I have to work with Reflect messages?

Ocrana
BOOL CResizablePropertySheet::OnNotify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, LRESULT* pResult) 
{
	NMHDR* pNMHDR = (LPNMHDR) lParam;
	
	// The sheet resizes the page whenever it is activated
	// so we need to resize it to what we want
	if (pNMHDR->code == TCN_SELCHANGE)
		// user-defined message needs to be posted, not sent, because
		// page must be resized after TCN_SELCHANGE has been processed.
		PostMessage(WM_RESIZEPAGE);

	return CPropertySheet::OnNotify(wParam, lParam, pResult);
}

the current code sends a WM_RESIZE to the property sheet itself, such that you can handle the message in OnResizePage:

LONG CResizablePropertySheet::OnResizePage(UINT, LONG)
{
   CPropertyPage * pPage = GetActivePage();
   ASSERT (pPage);
   pPage->MoveWindow(&m_rectPage);
   return 0;
}

Open in new window


here the GetActivePage would return a pointer to the new child dialog.

BUt the : return CPropertySheet::OnNotify(wParam, lParam, pResult); do not have any effect to the Parent window? I assume it will be send to the parent, too.

what parent do you mean? the property sheet is the parent window of all its pages. you can get a page window by GetActivePage() or GetPage(index) in the property sheet class (your derived class). then you can cast that pointer to the appropriate dialog class and call functions of that dialog. no need to send any notifications.

the call CPropertySheet::OnNotify(wParam, lParam, pResult) will change the active page of its tab control member. so before and after that call you would get old and new page by GetActivePage.

The parent iis the CDialog where the CPropertySheet is added to, please read my question.

So the parent window (CDialog) will not be able to receive the OnNotify message, too? Nothing about bypassed or reflected?

if you have a parent dialog of the property sheet you can get a pointer to it by

CMyParentDialog * pParDlg = (CMyParentDialog *)GetParent();
if (pParDlg != NULL)
{
   pParDlg->notifyPageChange();
}

Open in new window


the notifyPageChange would be a public member function you have to provide. of course you can add arguments like old_page_index, new_page_index and more to the function.
