I have learned the fundamentals of C++. To honest, I truly enjoy programming using C++ and prefer to program using C++.
I signed up for a college course named "GUI Programming." I read the course information and saw that it goes over menu, dialogs, etc. I picked up the books for the spring semester today, and I found out that course is actually a Visual Basic course with emphasis on GUI. I was appalled when I saw the VB book. I thought all alone that the class was GUI programming using C++. I immediately returned the textbook and will drop that class.
My passionate is C++. I want to program exclusively using C++ no matter how difficult GUI is using C++. I would like to know what programming language do programmers use to program the GUI interface under Windows and Linux's XWindows? I returned the textbook, but I have not drop the class. The only reason I can see going through with the class is if it is possible to somehow convert GUI in VB into C++. However, I greatly prefer to use C++ exclusively.
Last, I really want to learn GUI. What are some good C++ books with emphasis on GUI programming?
