    New to creating interfaces

    Hello everyone,
    I'm actually taking a course in data structures were I'm asked as a project to write a software which runs a small market
    As the actual function of the software is easy to implement (using classes, lists, queues...), I would like to improve my interface and not use the black window were it is impossible to do something other than typing

    What I was thinking is some interface which will help me to change the background, scroll down and select functions, select items, display bmps...

    Could someone just give me a guidance to where I should start? If It's too hard to learn in a small amount of time, is there a place where I can download templates and modify them?

    Thank you.

    I tried to read the OpenGL tutorial on this site, but when I tried to copy the code in "Introduction to Windows Programming" I stumbled over 2 errors:

    LIBCD.lib(crt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _main
    Debug/test.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

    What are those? Thank you

    Maybe you are not compiling with the right subsystem: If your "main" is called WinMain, then you need to use "/subsystem:windows", rather the (default) "/subsystem:console".

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
