Is there a way to dynamically change the text of a page after it is inserted?

For example, when the item is first inserted, the caption text is "Initial Text"

pPII = m_wndPageNavigator.ItemInsert(
    _T("Initial Text"),
    (HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_IMAGE), IMAGE_ICON, 24, 24, 0 ),
    (HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_IMAGE_SMALL), IMAGE_ICON, 16, 16, 0 )

But, if another page is displayed, I want to change the caption to something like "Changed Text"

How can I do this?

I modified PageNavigator sample like this:

	CExtPageNavigatorWnd::PAGE_ITEM_INFO * pPII = 
			(HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_MAIL), IMAGE_ICON, 24, 24, 0 ),
			(HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_MAIL_SMALL), IMAGE_ICON, 16, 16, 0 )
	CExtPageNavigatorWnd::PAGE_ITEM_INFO * pPII2 = pPII; // added this line
	pPII = m_wndPageNavigator.ItemInsert(
		(HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_CALENDAR), IMAGE_ICON, 24, 24, 0 ),
		(HICON)::LoadImage( ::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_CALENDAR_SMALL), IMAGE_ICON, 16, 16, 0 )
	pPII2->TextSet(_T("Mail2")); // added this line
Text of first page is now Mail2, when you run the sample. If you need pPII in another method, you can get it anywhere calling CExtPageNavigatorWnd::PAGE_ITEM_INFO * pPII = m_wndPageNavigator.ItemGetInfo(PANE_LOCATION);
