    Windows Applications in C++

    I just downloaded Dev-C++ and I can create windows apps but how do I add buttons and text boxes and things like that? I looked in the help menu and didn't find help... Is there a tutorial somewhere or something?

    ~THANKS~

    There's an entire chapter in a book here, 'Visual C++ 6.0 Bible' which explains it quite nicely..
    If you're not using MSVC++ you can't use the Dialog editor (obviously) and you'll have to use rects to specify where the control is placed (this is long and tedious if you're using a lot of controls)

    I think you'll be hard pressed to find tutorials for Dev C++, most of the ones i've seen involve the dialog editor.. perhaps someone else can help you...

    Actually, the Dev-C++ IDE is the best free IDE around. Also, great for a open-source project to boot.

    You could also go to the bookstore and get yourself a book on it, an Intro version of MSVC++ 6 comes with a lot of C++ books... that'd be a good way to go.

    That's not a proven fact, it's your own personal opinion... I think you should try stating it as an opinion and not fact.
