    Question Splash screen in borland C++ builder

    Well guys,


    i've been working for days in a project, for the college, it's a solitaire game(klondike, like the windows famou card game), but i'm confused now, how should I congratulate the player of his victory?


    I thought in show a splash screen, but i don't know how to make them.

    Can you suggest me, ou give me an example of a splash screen?

    I'm C programmer, my project is in C++, becaus the teacher did the graphical interface using chai3d(an API that uses C++), and we, the students, did the "dirty-work" in C.

    So please, be patiente, I'm newbie in C++.

    Thkx for the help, and sorry about my poor english.

    Mayhaps instead of a splash screen, a message box instead?

    >a message box instead?

    Code:
    MessageBox(NULL, "C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!", "YOU WIN",
              MB_ICONEXCLAMATION | MB_OK);

    I assumed you assumed he was, but in case that assumption was wrong, I wanted to tell him

    I'll wait until he tells us if he is using Win32. If not, to provide anything I'll need a platform.

    Yes, but the vast majority of people use WIN32 anyway. But you are right, it is best to find out from the OP before any real help can be offered

    He didn't say he was new to C though. The Win32 API is written in C.
