    I'm trying to find some information about making a nice GUI in c. I'd like to make frames and align my text and so on.

    Anyone knows a good resource ?

    What OS?
    You could always use a portable library such as wxWidgets or GTk+ (google them).
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    those are both actually C++

    I haven't found any C based widgets myself, the functionality of gui widgets is better supported by C++

    C Gui

    The most simple pure C GUI you can design is to use "ncursors" ...there are various tutorials online you can do!!!

    However, this is more like DOS based GUI environments and its hard to do mouse interaction!!!!! BUT! Its a great startpoint!!!!

    Indeed it does - even the examples are C based:
