    How long did it take you???????

    How long did it take you to pick up and understand windows programming I am not expecting to get it right away and you are probably like this kid is expecting to much but I am just curious. I have been reading Petzold's Fifth Edition for 3 days on page 82 and frankly I feel like beating my head repeatedly on the keyboard. Anyone else get this?

    If you need less than a month for the basics you are either a real whiz-kid, or you have too much sparetime on your hands. It's hard. Take it easy

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I was able to create a window and basic child-controls, (besides a textbox) after about a month. Although, it was during the summer and I was REALLY working hard on it.

    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    I've been using Win32 for years, and probably still learn at least one new thing a week! (Admittedly, some of these are things I new once but had forgotten - but hell, with the size of the API, that's inevitable).

    I know what you mean, I haven't done API since I left the board for flashdaddee's a while ago (that wasn't TOO long ago, but now I'm back so whatever ) and I'm already rusty. I used to be like WinAPI guru and now...*pffft*
