    An utterly useless question if you don't say which OS/Compiler you're using.

    It's Gnome by the way.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    echo Salem. There are many widget toolkits that can be used with C, but which one you use highly depends on your target platform.

    ...but Gnome it the best

    What is "best" as far as you're concerned?

    Easiest to program?
    Easiest to use?
    Most likely to get you a well-paid job?
    Easiest for the user to use?
    Most likely to be familiar to a user?
    Easiest to debug?
    Easiest to customise to your own style?

    I'd like to know one that allows me to control all the window, and that is compactible with linux and windows without wine if possible easy to program but with a nice performance... it might be difficult, but lets see what can i choose
    thanks

    I know that GTK+ has a Windows port, if that's what you're looking for..

    How many C cross-platform APIs are there, anyway? I can't think of any besides GTK+.
    The problem with that, of course, is that GTK+ is released under the LGPL, which puts some requirements on your app. (Most notably, that it must be possible to rebuild your application with modified GTK libraries. This, in turn, probably means that you must distribute files that can be used to re-link the necessary components, like object files or static libraries.)

    Isn't Allegro primarily a graphics platform, though?

    Well http://www.wxwindows.org/ is one example of a cross-platform GUI which I know of, maybe it's what you're after.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I had only heard about GTK+ and WinAPI before.
    I don't know if GTK allows me to do what i said (control all the window, make Windows-Style dialogs that can also be ran on linux). I like the GUI that you said. Does it have a nice performance? Does it work on linux? Is it better than GTK+? Are there any better than those?
    Thanks!
