I would like to add tabs to the Prof-UIS customization dialog box, and maybe even add controls to existing tabs.  Is this possible?  What would be the right way to do it?

I also want to make it possible for users to drag and drop controls from my own command lists into the menus/toolbars.  Can you point me in the right direction for achieving this?

By the way, I notice that dialog is still unthemed, which makes it look a bit out of place.  I’m still hoping that you will provide a themed replacement for CPropertyPage and CPropertySheet in a future version, which would also make it easy for you to skin the customization dialog :-)

There are two reasons why the customize property sheet is themed by Windows in Prof-UIS 2.85 and older versions: it’s a tool window and there is no support for themed tabs in resizable property sheet. The themed resizable property sheet in the tabbed mode is present in Prof-UIS 2.87. Now we can make the customize form themed by Prof-UIS.

If you need to improve the customize dialog, then you should override the CExtCustomizeSite::OnCreateCustomizeForm() virtual method. Your method should be similar to original. It can create additional property pages. It can remove existing property pages and/or created improved versions of them. You can derive from existing property page classes and inject additional controls into them.
