    also, where would i change the background?(color) thanks in advance.

    You might want to start by reading the notes in the code?

    /* Use Windows's default color as the background of the window */

    wincl.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH) COLOR_BACKGROUND;

    Operating Systems=Slackware Linux 9.1,Windows 98/Xp
    Compilers=gcc 3.2.3, Visual C++ 6.0, DevC++(Mingw)

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.

    For a bit of humor check out xkcd web comic http://xkcd.com/235/

    The very first Google result when searching for "hbrush" is the page of Forger's Win32 tutorial that explains what brushes are and how to use them.

    Since you are apparently unwilling to do even the slightest bit of research without having your hand held, we have decided to close this thread and not re-open it.

    I'm going to say it one last time: learn the core language first. Get a good book (see the recommendations thread). When you know the language, then learn Win32 programming if that's what interests you.
