PropertySheet info  Overview  Group

The PropertySheet function creates a property sheet and adds the pages defined in the specified property sheet header structure.

int PropertySheet(




Pointer to a PROPSHEETHEADER structure that defines the frame and pages of a property sheet.

Return Values

Returns a positive value if successful or - 1 otherwise.

If the dwFlags member of the PROPSHEETHEADER structure specifies the PSH_MODELESS flag, the successful return value is the window handle of the property sheet dialog.

The following return values have a special meaning:




A page sent the PSM_REBOOTSYSTEM message to the property sheet. The computer must be restarted for the userís changes to take effect.


A page sent the PSM_RESTARTWINDOWS message to the property sheet. Windows must be restarted for the userís changes to take effect.

To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


By default, PropertySheet creates a modal dialog. If the dwFlags member of the PROPSHEETHEADER structure specifies the PSH_MODELESS flag, PropertySheet creates a modeless dialog and returns immediately after the dialog is created. In this case, the PropertySheet return value is the window handle of the modeless dialog.

For a modeless property sheet, your message loop should use PSM_ISDIALOGMESSAGE to pass messages to the property sheet dialog. Your message loop should use PSM_GETCURRENTPAGEHWND to determine when to destroy the dialog. When the user selects the OK or Cancel button, PSM_GETCURRENTPAGEHWND returns NULL, and you can then use the DestroyWindow function to destroy the dialog.
