Main window in Win32 programming
I read theForger's Win32 API Tutorial for creating Win32 apps today, and it all made sense except for one part. How do you customize the main window? I'm used to creating MFC dialog based projects in Visual Studio 2k8, where the dialog you would see first was right in front of you to edit.
I know how to use the editor to create other dialogs, however, I am unsure how to edit the main window (its the one with the white background and default menubar). Can I just create a dialog and call CreateDialog() on it instead of CreateWindow() on a new window? I really don't want to hand-code all the elements on to the main window.
