    So I want to make a bunch of text area things

    So I want to make an application/program with a bunch of text area things that the user can paste text into, and press some buttons and have the program process the text and spit out some new text in another text box.

    What's a good place to learn how to do that?

    Of course you can do it with C. C# isn't anymore powerful than C is. Check out Charles Petzold's Windows Programming 5th edition, that is an EXCELLENT book for Win32 beginners.

    yeah, I recomend petzold as well


    it sounds like you will be using CreateWindowEx to make some child windows with the EDIT and BUTTON in your lpClassName parameter

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...tewindowex.asp

    something like

    Code:
        hText = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "EDIT", "", 
            WS_CHILD, 
            -1, -1, 130, 550, hwnd, (HMENU)IDC_TEXT, GetModuleHandle(NULL), NULL);
    assuming "hwnd" is your main window and "IDC_TEXT" is a unique #define

    am I right guys

    edit- also you can use more styles then just WS_CHILD
