Creating Message Handlers for the Property Sheet Elements

You need to add handlers to the design elements you have placed on the property page.

  1. Double-click a design element on the property page. The following dialog box displays.


  2. Select the design element name from the Class or object to handle list (for example, IDC_VIRUS_STRING).
  3. Select the name of the event you want to handle (for example, the EN_CHANGE event).
  4. Click the Add and Edit button – this will generate the needed method specification and let you edit the code. For example, if you use the IDC_VIRUS_STRING design element and the EN_CHANGE event, the following code will be generated:
    LRESULT OnChange_VirusString(WORD wNotifyCode, WORD wID, HWND hWndCtl, BOOL& bHandled)
            // TODO : Add Code for control notification handler.
            return 0;
  5. You would like, at least, to enable the Apply button whenever a change to any of the controls is made. To do so you need to add the following code to the message handler:
        // Enable the Apply button
