    Windows GUIs

    Hello,

    I'd like to learn how to create a GUI using standard Windows widgets (command buttons, menus, textboxes, etc) in C++. Can anyone direct me to a tutorial explaining the basics on how to do this? (And could you tell me how long you'd expect it to take / how difficult it is to learn to create GUIs in C++ compared to other languages like Java?)

    Thanks,

    Just

    Some say 6 months, but what you get out is dependant on what you put in.....

    Its a lot harder to make a Windows GUI in C++ than it is with say Swing in Java......see the tutorial above and you will understand
