I have sample code from MS for areo style Wizard, I do not know how to customize some of the buttons, say, I need to change button text for cancel, remove button next, or even ownerdraw those buttons, I do not know how to do it.

I have use spy to looking into the window, I find that the button is not simple, it has 2 layers of window, and I find ID for those buttons are all 0, so I do not know how to do it.

Does any one has experience working on Areo style of Wizard?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Evan Li,

could you post the link from where you got the sample cpde?

In what kind of application do you want to use it, managed C#/C++, unmanaged C++ with or without MFC, anything else ...?

Best regards,

OK, After some research I have following solution:

This is the function to find button window handle:

HWND FindButton(HWND hdlg, TCHAR *ptr)
{
      HWND hSheet = GetParent(hdlg);
      hSheet = GetParent(hSheet);

      HWND hchild = NULL;
      do
      {
            TCHAR szTitle[100];
            hchild = FindWindowEx(hSheet, hchild, "CtrlNotifySink", NULL);

            HWND hButton = NULL;
            if (hchild)
            {
                  hButton = FindWindowEx(hchild, hButton, "Button", NULL);
                  auto lID = GetWindowLongPtr(hButton, GWLP_ID);
                  GetWindowText(hButton, szTitle, 100);
                  if (!strcmp(szTitle, ptr))
                  {
                        return hButton;
                  }
            }
            else
            {
                  break;
            }

      } while (true);
      return NULL;
}

When add following lines under message WM_NOTIFY, PSN_SETACTIVE:


                        TCHAR szBtnName[] = "&Next";
                        HWND hWndBtn = FindButton(hwndDlg, szBtnName);
                        SetWindowText(hWndBtn, "Changed");

As ID for the buttons are 0, we can only use button text as ID, which means we need to change the text ID when the language changed, this can be always digged out.

Thanks Zoppo for your help.
