Lesson 7. Creating and Using Property Sheets

Sooner or later, you'll find that a single dialog box doesn't offer enough screen space to display all the controls needed to maintain the properties of a particular object. Or you may find that a complex mass of controls is confusing and unstructured. In these situations, a property sheet provides the ideal solution to this problem by letting you group common sets of controls into individual overlapping pages. The property sheet user can select between these pages by clicking on a titled tab representing each page in a way analogous to those filofaxes so fashionable in the 1980s.
