    Question - GUI Programming

    Did you guys make your own GUI's for your editors? Or did you download a library?

    Right now I'm going to try out www.wxwidgets.org
    Sometimes I forget what I am doing when I enter a room, actually, quite often.

    ARHG, I'm so angered by the documentation these free libraries have, they freaking SUCK!!!!!!

    Maybe I'll just use win32....

    Right now i'm using GLUI. Not the greatest, but it works. I'll probably just write my own GUI system eventually.

    I'll try MFC, I have a whole book on it, it is basically the 4th quarter of my advanced programming course anyways..

    I'll give it a try.

    It's not too bad Shamino, but it's even easier if you have ClassWizard in MSVC .NET or MSVC 6. However, you can do it without these, it's just harder.

    I bought some books on MFC as well, although they didn't point me directly to what I needed they did help. If you need any help with MFC, go to the Windows Programming Board and nvoigt, adrianxw, and a host of others know a lot about it.
