am using the CExtPageNavigatorWnd and inserting items and panes in CMainFrame::OnCreateClient() function. Here is a code snippet:

CExtPageNavigatorWnd::PAGE_ITEM_INFO * pPII =



_T("Item 1"),

(HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_NO_IMAGE), IMAGE_ICON, 24, 24, 0 ),

(HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_NO_IMAGE), IMAGE_ICON, 16, 16, 0 )


If I insert a number of items, lets say 4, how do I make the second item the default (or active item) when the program starts? That is, I donaˆ™t want the user to have to click a certain tab (and to handle via the CExtPageNavigatorWnd::g_nMsgSelectionNotification message handler). I want the program to make this tab active, regardless of the order that the items were inserted. Is there a function I can call at the end of OnCreateClient() to do this?

Tech support answered this question for me via email - the answer is that there is a SelectionSet() method
