    Visual Studio .NET

    Hey Guys,

    I just got VS .NET a few days ago and now im in a delema; I dont know how to create a windows application using the visual stuff instead of actually having to write the code for all the features in the program. I know how to create a project and all that but it doesnt seem to have the "Design" capability for C++ as it does for C#.

    do you mean creating a resource?

    I believe it works the same way in .net as it does in 6.0, where you just do insert-> resource and you can insert a dialog in to your program. Then just use the CreateDialog and DialogWindow functions to display it.

    No i'm not talking about dialogs or messagebox's, i'm talking about the visual part of VS .net where you can place things like buttons, menu items and textboxes with out actually having to write the code.

    As jverkoey said, I think you want resources.

    If you have VS.NET 2003, you can design Windows Forms for managed C++.NET projects. This is in addition to the old form designer via resources. This new one is identical to the one used by C# and VB.NET.

    Just make a "Windows Forms Application (.NET)" project under C++.
