    Drag and drop functionality

    Is there C++ compiler like Visual Studios for free on the net (like Dev C++ is) that has drag and drop functionality like Visual Studios does so you don't have to type so much just to make the design of a window look nice?

    Thanks
    Tazz

    There's wxDev-C++ which builts on Dev-C++ and provides drag and drop. However it is meant for wxWidgets, not MFC. Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition also uses drag and drop, but only for .Net programming. It doesn't offer this for ISO C++.

    Other than that, I don't know...
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    This isn't about the c++ programming language. Moved to tech.

    I believe it's called RAD - Rapid Application Development.

    Yes, wxWidgets supports this functionality, but the generated executables are HUGE. It appears that MinGW/GCC generates a large amount of code, possibly playing on the safe side of portability.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    puts(a);return;}for(;c<='9';++c){for(f=0;f<9;++f)if(a[i-i%27+i%9
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}

    Not sure

    Are you talking about a Resource editor ?
    They let you draw windows and widgets.
