In many cases, is usefull to have in one page of propery sheet more controls. But if the area of page is not enough, you have to insert some scroll bars into page. To make this simple you can do the followings:

  • From class wizard add a new CFormView, with ID be the id of created dialog. (CMyFormView)

  • From classwizard, add in this class (CFormView) a new member PostNcDestroy.
  • From the generated body function remove CFormView::PostNcDestroy() ( In CFormView::PostNcDestroy is called delete this)
  • Add handler for WM_CREATE message into CMyFormView, and in the body of the generated function call SetScrollSizes(MM_TEXT, CSize(100,200));
  • Add a new function public: virtual BOOL CMyFormView::Create(CWnd* pParent), with body
  • 
    BOOL CMyFormView::Create(CWnd *pParent)
    {
    CRect rect; pParent->GetClientRect(rect);
    return CFormView::Create(NULL, NULL, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, rect, pParent, 0, NULL);
