    Question Drawing

    I was just wondering how I would go about making a small app, something like ms Paint, but simpler.. just something to draw in, doodle, that kinda thing.

    Is the GDI alone capable of doing that? Nothing fancy of course... just doing it for the sake of doing it

    Any functions for me to look up, web sites, or advice would be appreciated.. i'm just not sure whats needed.

    Thanks

    Yes.

    Quite a few beginner API/MFC books use a simple drawing program as one of their tutorial programs.
