How to Create a Property Sheet

The example in this section creates a property sheet that contains two pages—one for setting the font properties of a cell in a spreadsheet, and another for setting the border properties of the cell.

The example defines the pages by filling a pair of PROPSHEETPAGE structures and specifying the address in the PROPSHEETHEADER structure that is passed to the PropertySheet function.

Create a Property Sheet

The following code example demonstrates how to create a two–page property sheet.



// DoPropertySheet - creates a property sheet that contains two pages.
//
// hwndOwner - handle to the owner window of the property sheet.
//
// Global variables
//     g_hinst - instance handle

extern HINSTANCE g_hinst;

VOID DoPropertySheet(HWND hwndOwner)
{
    PROPSHEETPAGE psp[2];
    
    PROPSHEETHEADER psh;
    
    psp[0].dwSize      = sizeof(PROPSHEETPAGE);
    psp[0].dwFlags     = PSP_USEICONID | PSP_USETITLE;
    psp[0].hInstance   = g_hinst;
    psp[0].pszTemplate = MAKEINTRESOURCE(DLG_FONT);
    psp[0].pszIcon     = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_FONT);
    psp[0].pfnDlgProc  = FontDialogProc;
    psp[0].pszTitle    = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDS_FONT)
    psp[0].lParam      = 0;
    psp[0].pfnCallback = NULL;
    psp[1].dwSize      = sizeof(PROPSHEETPAGE);
    psp[1].dwFlags     = PSP_USEICONID | PSP_USETITLE;
    psp[1].hInstance   = g_hinst;
    psp[1].pszTemplate = MAKEINTRESOURCE(DLG_BORDER);
    psp[1].pszIcon     = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_BORDER);
    psp[1].pfnDlgProc  = BorderDialogProc;
    psp[1].pszTitle    = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDS_BORDER);
    psp[1].lParam      = 0;
    psp[1].pfnCallback = NULL;
    
    psh.dwSize      = sizeof(PROPSHEETHEADER);
    psh.dwFlags     = PSH_USEICONID | PSH_PROPSHEETPAGE;
    psh.hwndParent  = hwndOwner;
    psh.hInstance   = g_hinst;
    psh.pszIcon     = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_CELL_PROPERTIES);
    psh.pszCaption  = (LPSTR) "Cell Properties";
    psh.nPages      = sizeof(psp) / sizeof(PROPSHEETPAGE);
    psh.nStartPage  = 0;
    psh.ppsp        = (LPCPROPSHEETPAGE) &psp;
    psh.pfnCallback = NULL;
    
    PropertySheet(&psh);
    
    return;
}


Remarks

The dialog box templates, icons, and labels for the pages are loaded from the resources contained in the application's executable file. The icon for the property sheet is also loaded from the application's resources.
