    Unhappy visual vs non and onclick

    is it better to learn c++ before visual c if you are a new programmer or doesn't it matter?
    Whats the main differences and what other tool sdo you need for visual c?

    and when you writ a program in c++ it does it but then closes the window automatically what do you need to include in the code to make it only go down when you press a key?

    you need to learn c or c++ before you can write a GUI program for either *nix, MS-Windows or MAC. If you don't, you will get completly lost very very fast.

    About your second question, read the FAQ thread because I think it is answered there. That hread is well worth reading because it has a lot of other information that you will probably find useful.

    Visual C++ ---> How to make pretty windows to display the results of your program, or to provide buttons for the user to interact with, which your program then responds to. Very difficult.

    C++ ---> How to make programs that do various things. Difficult.

    Keeping window open --> see the cboard FAQ. Easy.

    If you want to use MFC, then you can get a good tutorial at www.msdn.microsoft.com -- search for "scribble tutorial". But beware -- you must know c++ pretty well.
