    WIN API simple programs

    Is there any simple programs to get me into windows programming. I don't understand half the stuff on the premade window maker.

    Is there an easy way of making a window with text on it?

    Im using Dev C++ with Mingw GNU, but i have CYGWIN as well.

    You might want to ask on the Windows forum... I'll move the thread over there.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE, HINSTANCE, LPSTR, int)
    {
    MessageBox(0, "Hello World", "Messagebox", MB_OK);
    return 0;
    }
    Is about as simple as it gets. There's a more 'standard' example of window creation by Adrianxw in this thread. Other examples can be found by searching this board.
