First time creating a form
I'm using visual C++ to try and create a window which will display various bits and bobs from my program. For example, I have a text box which I want to fill with a list of strings generated by my program.
I have a function called addText() which I wrote in the form header file.
My question is, how can I call this from my main cpp file? (forget for now that it doesn't have any parameters).
public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
String ^ b = gcnew String("asd");
This is a section from my cpp file:
This currently will compile, but will not display the text correctly. My confusion lies in how to access the form which is running. Presumably, a form is created, runs and is displayed by this line:
using namespace form;
int main(array<System::String ^> ^args)
// Enabling Windows XP visual effects before any controls are created
// Create the main window and run it
By creating 'fas' am I not just creating a new form, which will not be displayed? How should I access the member functions of the form that is being displayed?
