Creating Wizard Type Dialogue Boxes that are linked.

(OP)
I am creating a file conversion program and need several inputs from the user that must be in more than one dialogue box. How do make them so when the user clicks next, the dialogue window changes instead of making a new dialogue window. Is there a class to derive from or do I have to make individual dialogue windows and link them? I looked at CPropertySheet class but seems like it is intended to be used with tabs, but I want the user to be required to click next. Can I use CPropertyPages inside a regular dialogue box that will change from Page to Page everytime the next button is pushed, thus avoiding tabs. Any suggestions? Thanks in advanced.

Dear reneb,

In the future when someone points you to a piece of documentation that will provide you with answers to your questions.... READ IT!!!!!!! Then if you need to... READ IT AGAIN!!!!!!!! My goodness this is just horrible!

This is an excerpt from the CPropertySheet overview on the MSDN Web site that I already told you to look at, please read the part that says, "In a wizard-type tab dialog box, the property pages do not have tabs":

-------------------------------------------------
You can create a type of tab dialog box called a wizard, which consists of a property sheet with a sequence of property pages that guide the user through the steps of an operation, such as setting up a device or creating a newsletter. In a wizard-type tab dialog box, the property pages do not have tabs, and only one property page is visible at a time. Also, instead of having OK and Apply Now buttons, a wizard-type tab dialog box has a Back button, a Next or Finish button, a Cancel button, and a Help button
-------------------------------------------------------


In the future put some effort into your own project or don't bother asking others for help.

Thoroughly disgusted :o(
