    Beginner at windows programming.

    I know how to make a simple box with different buttons, but I am trying to learn more.
    I have a book on windows programming and it starts talking about registering your window.

    I read it over and over but it never made any sense.
    Can someone try to explain it and give me an example of where and how I use it?

    Thanks,
    S_R_S

    Read this over and over until you get it. Type it in - don't cut and paste. Compile it. Find your bugs.
