Thread: making a basic window...

    making a basic window...

    i know a fairly good chunck of c++ (polymorphism inheritance just starting linked lists) and i was curious about the windows programming language.. now, i see the huge amount of code it takes to make a simple window and i ask you this... can that be included like iostream or do you have to type that and make it a template?

    could you post some code that will make a simple window for msvc++?

    i would greatly appreciate it. i dont normally ask for code but im clueless on this thanks!

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    You can use dialogs to reduce the amount of coding (you basically need a CreateDialog call).
