  • Introduction to the Wizard 97

    The Platform Internet SDK along with its all other Goodies adds a new Property Sheet Wizard User Interface. It could enhance your user interface by supporting a watermark background bitmap and a bitmapped header for the property page.

    The attached sample demonstrates an application whose main window is a Wizard 97 based property sheet.

    Microsoft has included two new classes for the purpose:

    • CPropertySheetEx - CPropertySheet enhancing the current property sheet to support a watermark background bitmap and a bitmapped header.
    • CPropertyPageEx - CPropertyPage enhancing the current property page to determine whether the page requires a header or a watermark background.

    Sample Screen shots of the test application:

    After building a bitmap handle to the Watermark and the Header bitmap it is passed to the constructor to the extended property sheets constructor.

    CPropertySheetEx(UINT nIDCaption, CWnd* pParentWnd = NULL, UINT iSelectPage = 0,
                     HBITMAP hbmWatermark = NULL, HPALETTE hpalWatermark = NULL,
                     HBITMAP hbmHeader = NULL);

    Also the flags for the property sheet header flags should include the PSH_WIZARD97 style in the constructor.

    m_psh.dwFlags |= PSH_WIZARD97;

    Also the flags for the property page header could include the PSP_HIDEHEADER style in the constructor to prompt that no header is required (the header bitmap is not displayed example in the welcome page - 1st page).

    GeneralWizard97 - adding pages after DoModal() Pin

    I have some problems with adding pages after the sheet is displayed. If the page has a title and/or subtitle, then when pressing Next or Back to this page, the application crashes with a “User breakpoint called” (no stack). However, none of this happens if there is no title and no subtitle, or, if the page is added before the sheet’s DoModal(). Is there any known solution for that problem
