GUI Design for the first time!
Hi everyone. Advanced apologies if I'm writing this in the wrong style, but its my first time on this site. I must say - its very impressive!!!
I'm a relatively new C programmer - i've only been doing it for about a year and I'm trying to create myself a little gizmo.
I want to design myself a software guitar tuner for my home PC and I'm at the stage where I need to design the GUI (Graphical User Interface). I've got loads of books that I'm trying to read through and they all give me advice on what makes a good GUI, etc, etc. My problem is that I'm using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 and most of the examples I have are for Boorland or other compilers.
What I could really do with is a short extract of example code for how to even get a basic empty window to appear on my screen! From there, I can start to add graphics, radio buttons, etc etc, but I can't do anything without a window to start!
I hope someone can help me to get this project into its next stage.
in anticipation of some expert help...
