    windows programming using drag and drop

    hi,

    I am sorry if this question is silly. I am completely new to windows programming. previously i was doing my c\c++ programming in cosole.

    Is it possible to create a form by drag and drop using visual c++ ( just like vb)?

    can you give me a link where I can find to build the frontend using vb and backend using vc?

    this question may be related to java.

    can I make a windows programe using java as the frontend and c\c++ as backend? ( If you know any site related to this pls give the address )

    thank you.
    abhijeet.

    If you want VB-style drag and drop, Borland's C++ Builder is your software. The full product, not the command-line compiler they're known to give away.

    If you just want to lay out a few windows then a dialog resource editor, like the one integrated into MS Visual C++, will serve your needs just fine.

    As for Java frontend/C++ backend, I'm almost certain it can be done (never done it myself though). Would need to examine what dynamic linkage is available.
