    Mfc?

    ok. am starting to shove into some MFC dialog programming for a project I have in class. We spent all semester making a system and refining it, etc. Now, at the end, we are supposed to be tying it into a MFC enviroment too. Well, we have no knowledge of this. So am looking for some tutorials on it. Went to cprogramming and didnt see much, am looking around codeproject now.

    We are using msvc++ 6 and doing one of the MFCAppwizard(EXE) projects. Any ideas, suggestions, or directions?

    Thanks again.

    youll defianately have to read a whole book if your teacher just told you to go do what you were doing in C++ in VC++(MFC), that sounds like a pretty obnoxious teacher

    I concur with Cgawd. Unless of course you are expected to already be familiar with MFC. Do you need to use mfc? There are other libraries such as octopod and wxwindows.

    Should I learn MFC, already knowing the API?

    obnoxious teacher? absolutly. the entire semester he has been like this. he teaches thinking in class(as in function cost, how to make design decs, and the underworkings of the compiler), and then expects you to be able to code it. We had a grad TA go over a little bit of programming, then had him come in and give us this lecture [1]. the level of information we have gotten from him has been nothing except for an email he copied to us he sent to the graders explaining how this assignment will be worth about 4 times as much as other assignments, making it our "final assignment."

    I am not a fan of the prof, as he is teaching us things contradictory to our book and basically just doing whatever he feels he wants to. But enough of my ranting, I found a good tutorial on codeproject.com[2] that has at least given me an idea of some of the things and the ways to do things.

    thanks for the help.


    [1] MFC class lecture notes. Wow, this basically shows me how to create a new project.Class notes for Lecture 17: MFC

    [2] codeproject.com tutorial for starting with dialog based mfc apps. So much better then even our lecture.
