    win32 API

    Hi guys, i want to start to program an app with a GUI, how can i start to learn to program with the API, i have no idea where to start, can you reccomend a good tutorial, i'm a student and have no money for books until april and i would like to get started.

    I already know the basics of C++.

    Thanks a lot.

    This is the one from the FAQ here...

    ...there are a list of others here...

    ... if you're serious about API programming, you will need Charles Petzolds book, "Programming Windows" (5th edition), at some time.

    I also like the way the tutes at www.winprog.org are written, pretty clear and to the point.
