    Window Class?

    Instead of having to create the window every single time... is there anyone who actually made an external class inside a header file that I can download that holds all of the window making stuff... while you declare the variables in the main part of the program?

    If I understand you correctly, you want Visual Basic. It's called a form.

    ...

    I didn't quite understand your answer... was that supposed to mean that I shouldn't be doing win32 c++ but instead visual basic?

    Sorry, I was in a bad mood when I did that.

    a window is an instance of a windowclass much the same way that an object is an instance of a class in C++. You will always create a new window but I think you're looking to have a stock windowclass? That's kinda like saying you want to have a single class for all purposes in C++ and only use that. impossible right? everything in windows works through different types of windows and you need to be able to make different windowclasses.

    option 2: you want to use object oriented windows and set properties for the windowclass on an object. If that's what you want you may seriously want to look at MFC.

    You could make your own library of windows. You could write some macros. You could use MFC or WxWindows. Of course the VB idea is solid
