    You don't know that; you can't know that. That isn't a thing can be known. The statement is wrong.

    is there any way to creat gui in c?
    Let Me Google That For You. I'm not actually going to search for you, but you should get what I'm saying.

    What sort of rubbish have you been reading?

    Win32 is a 'C' API, therefore you can create a GUI using C.

    Fair enough, it will be a LOT of work compared to some pre-rolled C++ GUI class libraries out there, but a level of difficulty is far short of impossible.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If you want to create a UI in C, use GTK .

    it depends what you want to do. If you just need a few buttons, an edit box, maybe a dialogue for th user to enter a filename, then C won't be much work. If you needl all singing, all dancing dockable toolbars, resizeable controls, the realistically you'll have to use an high-level library.

    Sometimes true (in my experience) , but better to keep these kinds of opinions out of international message boards.

    Slow and Steady wins the race... if and only if :
    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !
