    another novice need some emergency help

    I need to write a program that draws a square with corner points (0,0) and (1,1). Prompt the user for a mouse click. If the user clicked inside the square, then show a message "Congratulations." Otherwise, show a message "You Missed."
    Any ideas how guys?

    If you need to draw a rectangle you need to use the Windows API. One way you can do it is to create a bitmap image, display it in a window, the check if the user left-clicked. If he/she did, get the coords of the mouse and the rectangle, and use an if() statement to display the box or not. If you don't know the Win API now, you might have a little trouble doing this, but it shouldn't be very hard. Good luck!
