    windows forms app c++ vs2010 express -- How do I connect it to my c++ software


    I have a c++ software. I use visual studio express 2010.
    I want to use forms to enter the data into my software , and also make form manual.

    I opened win form project. I created Form1. with few buttons.
    I saw the Form1.h file, that was generated.

    Do I simply call my function from the Event handlers. like this :

    private: System::Void button3_Click(System::Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e)


    and then refer to the button handler from my function like this ?

    void my_func (System::Windows::Forms::Button ^ button_handl) {
    button_handl->Text = L" my own text";

    Is this the way to do it ?

    (Note, I don't need web. it is a console application. )

    This is C++/CLI, if you have C++ code already written, then maybe a MFC app is way easier.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
