I try to get the Wizard class of my Application skinned. It does almost work, but my Wizard page has a Move Bar at the Top, and can be moved:


Pic1: Not yet moved, but there should not be a Border around the Inner Dialog


Pic 2: I even can move the inner Dialog


Both Dialogs are declared as CExtNCW < CExtResizableDialog >. The Outer Dialog has a function which can add several pages to it, which are all derived from a Bass Class derived from CExtNCW < CExtResizableDialog >.  Those Pages are then positioned with

pPage->SetWindowPos(NULL, rect.left,, 0, 0,



What are the right parameters to have the inner DIalog fixed and withour the border?

The child dialog pages should use the CExtResizableDialog class type as is.

Please check the following two things:

1) The CExtNCW template class is applied for popup windows floating on the desktop. This template class should not be applied to child windows like property sheet pages.

2) The dialog template resources of your wizard pages are marked as Child dialog type and Visible options.

1) Ok, what class do I have to use instead?

2) Yes they are..
