    It's funny how ambitious n00bs (no offense, it's technically correct) are. They always have amazing ideas for programs, always so high above their current skill level. They don't realize that their spirit will soon be crushed MUAH HAHAHAHA.

    Windows programming can wait until at least tomorrow jr2007, if not a couple years.

    Hi! I work with Visual Studio.NET 7.0 and it's very to create menus, dialog boxes, cursors... which are all resources.

    I haven't worked with Dev... but to do it in VS.NET it's easy.
    Just click in the menu "PROJECT" or might be "FILE", then "ADD RESOURCE..." or might be "INSERT", and specify the resource you want to add... Resource editors should be the part of the compiler so you probly have it.... I don'y know how to connect them to the application though ... I sent a letter yesterday and if i get any more info I'll add it...

    Later...
