I’m  using CExtResizablePropertyPage and CExtResizablePropertySheet to skin a property sheet, they work farily well. The only issue I found is : the tab control inside the property (SysTabControl32) is not skinned. Can I use Prof-UI class here or I need to handle this manually ? thanks

The CExtResizablePropertySheet and CExtResizablePropertyPage classes are currently fully skinned in the wizard mode only. Prof-UIS uses the CExtTabWnd control everywhere. This is not an extension of the tab common control. The CExtTabWnd control is written from scratch and supports a wider set of features than CTabCtrl does. We have a container control based on our tabs. The CExtTabPageContainerWnd window is designed as a container for one CExtTabWnd window docked to one of its sides and several page windows. You can create one popup dialog window, then create a CExtTabPageContainerWnd window and several buttons in it. The property pages should be created as child and visible dialogs inside the CExtTabPageContainerWnd window. Such design implements a themed property sheet window.
