Doing things like VB using Windows API in C++
Hey, basically here is the thing. I am an experienced Visual Basic programmer, and just recently started writing code in C++ for windows (been writing C++ console for a bit too).
I am wondenrig about how to do things that were easy in VB in Windows C++, such as make label's (not really using "DrawText" because you have to repaint those in the WM_PAINT otherwise they are erased as windows go over my window). Also text-boxes, list boxes, options, etc. You know what I mean, I want to know how to do these things.
Does anyone have a good reference I can look at or if its easy enough perhaps you can tell me how. I really appreciate your help. (The reason I ask this now, is that i'm pretty much done with my tetris clone game, and I wanted to give it a prettier interface). Thanks for your help again, really appreciate it!
BTW: I use Dev-C++ as my IDE and gcc as compiler for c++.
