    Question Development thingy

    Are there any free visual development environments for C, you know like Borland's C++Builder and Microsoft's Visual C where you can just click the button button and put a button in the window without having to type all that API crap. Because I hate doing Windows API "bareback".

    Bloodshed's Dev C++ for Windows, and for Linux, there's KDevelop. These are the only two I know of.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Dev-C++ has a Window editor thingy?

    I can't see it. I just get a little C code editor.

    heh, doing WinAPI all by yourself is awesome.

    But on that note, right now I'm designing my own graphical window editor that outputs pure API code (just the CreateWindow calls - it's only meant to position/size)

    >>right now I'm designing my own graphical window editor<<

    I thought you might be doing this Good luck there!

    LCC-WIN32 has a GUI resource editor, IDE is really simple to use but is a 'C' only compiler. It's also free but, like DevC++, you are invited to make a contribution for which you get a cd. With LCC-WIN32 the cd has the compiler source and other stuff. Anyway you can get it here:

    I've been playing around with it a bit and it's quite good fun. Most of the help files (which are quite comprehensive) are in word 'doc' format but I think someone has put together a chm help file that looks very professional. Unfortunately, I can't remember where it is....
