Greetings everybody. I am attempting to create my very own complicated window program with a status bar, a complicated menu, and more. So far I have the window and a simple version of the menu complete. However, with my limited knowledge of C++, I have a few questions on how to do some more complicated things (at least they're complicated to me).
1. How do I make it so when somebody clicks on a menu item it loads a certain URL in their default browser?
2. I am trying to make a status bar, but everything I've tried hasn't worked. I've used the search on this forum and google, but I haven't found any code that works for me... All I am asking for is a simple status bar (it doesn't have to have anything on it for all I care), but I need to know what site/book I can look at to know how to add features to it (such as a progress bar for loading things, a method of displaying the current x,y position of the cursor within certain sections of the program and more). But as long as it works, I'm happy.
I've tried codes from a multitude of web sites such as:
...but none of them work...
3. How do I create a popup window type thing (such as if you open Dev C++ and select Help --> About Dev C++...) where I can type in information about my program?
4. Last question...how do I add links to my messages displayed in popup windows? (See #3)
If any of these questions are obvious or easily found, I apologize. Thanks for any help I recieve and I'll probably have more questions in the future.
