    Thumbs up Menus

    How do you create a menu in C++? I checked out a tutorial but it's written basically in C, not C++. A couple of examples will do.
    Thanks

    errm ,... MSDN is not a library in terms of programing (like lib files or DLL's)

    it is a library in the sense of a book
    you can buy or download or subscribe to recieve copies of it from www.microsoft.com i think

    it comes with 4 CD's full of compiled HTML files (chm)
    with explanations of Win32API MFC and so on...

    As for the Microsoft Fried Chickens (MFC)
    its BAD for me...
    i use the standart Win32API ... its harder to write but it is more powerfull and good..

    Edit the resource file. If your using MSVC++, it's easier. Just go to the resource tab, and add the icons and stuff. But you have to make them, but Microsoft has a program that lets you do it.

    In Dev-C++, go to Project Options (alt-P)
