    I need some WinAPI functions

    Hi ~

    I'm starting off Windows programming with a simple program to manipulate MP3 file data. When a file is opened I plan to display the info in some regular static text boxes (like the 'title' option box as I write this). However, I do not know the function... Could someone please give me the name of the function/s necessary and the arguments within? Thanks!

    Note: While you're at it, could I have the functions for drawing buttons on the form, drawing labels and for creating and showing context menus?

    Thanks again;

    ~ Chris Howarth

    I'm afraid, no.

    Get a book. Get a tutorial. If you're too lazy for that, well, that's your problem not mine.

    I cannot find a tutorial or book for this - I have looked. I though someone might like to help.

    We're not your personal slaves. We aren't going to write your code for you or make a huge list of functions and parameters. The thing is, we would like to help you with your code. If you don't show us any code then we can't really help you with it now can we? Note that psuedocode will be accepted as code in most instances. I mean, you can at least make as much of the program as you know how, and then let us give you some advice for the blank areas.
    Don't quote me on that... ...seriously

    Its an option when you first register the windows class, I have no clue how to do it in MFC though.

    Look into the common controls section on MSDN, you should find what your looking for there. The MP3 format should be on wotsit.org.
