Well I searched the forum for 'MFC Tutorial' and that turned up two posts, with little information on learning MFC.
MFC itself seems a very powerful and versatile solution to speeding up win32 development times, which is what I need.
All I'm asking for is a good (preferably working :)) link to a solid, well rounded MFC tutorial. One like a good C++ programming tutorial that starts at the very beginning and walks you through (almost) every conceivable aspect of the topic at hand. Like a book.
I have no intention of using the MSVC MFC application wizard, for matters of my programming soul :p - I prefer to learn by hand.
Alas, Google turns up very little.
There are few real "set this up this way" tutorials on MFC. Its long and probably un-necessary to write it all by hand. Generally as the MFC wizard creates it, you get 5 source files. A "view" mainframe, app, main, and an idl file.
Honestly I would create it using the class wizard and study the source carefully to understand the inner workings of MFC.
If you are insistent in writing it by hand you can find info here or here
To me it was easier to learn by reading the code and working small things in the MFC wizard generated code than worrying if I had even gotten the base code working.
Yeah that works for you, this works for me. Cheers for the links :)
Lol if it works out for you its all good :) Just telling you my own specific tale, since I've used it fairly extensively in my own job. Hope those work out for you well, btw all I did was a google search...
Google it now!
i perfere books,
Programming windows with MFC - Jeff Prosise
that book is very good, i used it and it starts right from the begining, and it goes quite slow till you start learning about Scroll bars, then it just goes too fast, or at least for me. But if you learn from the book at tutorials at the same time its pretty good.
they have some tutorials, i have more sites i just cant find them right now.
