VERY new to this, so if I start to talk about something or suggest something horribly wrong, please slap me!
I want to begin to write some statistical software, I figured it is a good place to start. I am writing in C++ and want to write a UI with VB. If I understand things correctly from what I have been learning, Visual Basic is just the front end (although I know you can write in it as well), and my choice of program language is C++. SO... I should be able to write the C++ files and then reference them in my VB project - essentially passing values inputed through the UI of VB into the C++ files and then back into the UI.
Do I understand this correctly?
My next question is...
If I am to do something similar to this - work with VB and program in C++ - what type of file am I creating? I don't want the console to pop up every time I want to pass int's or strings through a function that is separate from the main. So am I writing in Windows Console? Or Windows Application? Or what...?
Hopefully you can see that I am lost - and hopefully I didn't misuse the nomenclature.
Thanks in advance,
