    In a nutshell: Where goes *.H equivalents of *.RC resource scripts?

    Hello, all.

    I'm a novice C++ Learner (6 days' programmer, to be exact) and, I thought it's best to learn the dialogs and windows first to get a sense of messaging and programming the Windows style.

    I've found out that the dialogs, menus and tool bars are first built into a script (the resource file - probably, because of its ease of handling by Visual C++ editor for a later edit).

    I also found out that the editor inserts some beautiful macro lines into the dialog header files (BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP, ON_[eventName], and like...) but couldn't figure out the where goes the "results" of those resource files.

    Where are the dialog, menu and tool bar descriptions compiled into header files?

    Does Visual C++ internally convert them to header files and then compiles into final executable?

    In a nutshell: Where goes *.H equivalents of *.RC resource scripts?

    Lastly: Is there an on-line resource for me to learn the MFC better?

    Thank you in advance and have a nice day.
