Using C++ for GUI with Database Application
i would like to work on a home project (so there is no pressure) . More like of a debit-storage program of some sort. so it would need a database, and GUI on Windows 98.
i just want to ask if it is enough to make a standalone application that i will use Win32 API or that would be too much of a pain(win32 api is hard even to make a dialog). should i go for wxWindows instead for the GUI? or a better suggestion to do the GUI?
as for the database what is probably easier to connect using C++? i am not well experience with regards to databases, but i only need a simple database probably two tables with relationship will do.
Another i would also like to have an output through excel or other spreadsheets like the one's on open office, but i don't know how to do it. does this requires me to learn COM? In Borland, i am used to calling to a component library for excel but i probably couldn't do the same thing because i would be dealing with a DevCpp compiler/components.
thanks and more power.
