    GUI library that works on windows and linux?

    Hi,
    I want to create a software that uses textbox, listbox, scroolbars etc.

    I would like it to work on windows and linux.

    Does anyone knows if there is any library already made that would work out on windows and linux?

    Or should I write down the GUI separatly on windows and linux, then use macros to compile each code differently depending of the OS its compiling under?

    Thanks all,
    Logan

    you can use wxWidgets. I haven't used it much, but it looks like a nice GUI library that's well documented.
