    new to windows programming, win32

    hi i am currently reading "programming windows 5ed" by petrold,
    are there any other good books on this topic you can recommend like this one?

    also why this windows programming board doesn't show more pages, ie there is no page 1,2,3,4...100 links at the bottom.

    thx

    Assuming you're a beginner to win32, "Beginning Windows NT Programming" by Julian Templeton is a fair start.

    As to the pages, when viewing the list of threads, scroll your browser window down, until you get to an area entitled "Thread Display Options". Change the pulldown entitled "Show threads from the ..." from "Last Month" to "Beginning", and then hit the "Show Threads" button which is to the right of the screen.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    I don't see why a beginner would need anything more than Petzold for quite a while.

    but I will need to move to advance stuff, I will need to know a lot about windows controls, I want to work on building ERP system. our company has ERP built in VB, but it seems to laggy to me so I want to see if doing it with Win32 will be better, and faster. I do have a lot to learn. such as live search combo boxes, excel style grid to enter data, probably report generation.
