Hiding the Standard Buttons

In the previous topic we discussed how to remove the Apply button. The technique covered here is applicable to any control as long as we know its control ID. When we hide a control using the ShowWindow() function all the other controls remain whereever they were. If the gap gives the property sheet an unappealing look, consider repositioning the other controls to fill up the gap.

The code below will hide the OK button. The IDs of the standard buttons are IDOK, IDCANCEL, IDHELP and ID_APPLY_NOW.

CWnd *pWnd = GetDlgItem( IDOK );
pWnd->ShowWindow( FALSE );
