I would like to know if you plan to support in the near future themed property sheets/pages in the default mode (without the "Back" and "Next" buttons). I know prfuis supports wizard style property sheets but I am still missing themed property sheets which are needed for configuration and similar stuff (several tab pages within one dialog like window - you know what I mean). Can I expect that you will support it? Because that is the only final part in my app that is not themed and that does not look good.

Currently I have all my settings implemented in MFC using CPropertySheet/CPropertyPage classes. I am just looking for the easiest and fastest way how to convert it to ProfUIS so I get my existing property pages themed by profuis. Do you think what you have just suggested is the best approach for my case or should I follow a different path?

We have the CExtTabWnd class in Prof-UIS implementing a tab line control and a set themed versions tabs derived from it . These controls are not based on the CTabCtrl tab common control because our tabs have more extended features such as tab item grouping, animated scrolling and extended set of buttons. That is why we do not support the tabbed mode in the CExtResizablePropertySheet class yet, it’s based on the tab common control. It’s easier for us to recode the tabbed property sheets from scratch using Prof-UIS tab page containers with child dialogs than to skin the tab common control which works differently in different Windows versions. Please let know whether do you need any kind of tabbed property sheet replacement or whether you need the MFC CPropertySheet-derived component?
