Thread: I just started Visual C++

  1. #1

    I just started Visual C++

    I've created a basic window using only API in visual C++. Now I'm trying to do some crap.

    How would you do something like change the caption of the title bar at runtime?

    I have the WinMain function and a WindowProc function. Where do you add buttons, check boxes and stuff to your window?

    Where do you add code???

    Thanks for any help. I'm understanding how the window works and all but I'm confused with how I code with it now.

    Sometimes, the farthest point from the center is the center itself.

    Your life is your canvas, it's only as beautiful as you paint it.

    Ok, so I'm trying to add an ICON to my program
    in "options.rc"
    #include "resource.h"


    in "resource.h"
    #define IDI_KEYLOGGER_ICON 1001

    in "options.cpp"
    #include "resource.h"

    I get an error:
    fatal error RC1004: unexpected end of file found

    it's found in resource.h and I don't know what it means. Help?

    If I remember correctly (I haven't used VC++ in a while) that means that you have a bracket that doesn't close...Hmm...If it doesn't have brackets, then I must be wrong...That sounds kind of strange...
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    I get that and it is never a problem in the header file, its always a syntax error in the .cpp file
    All spelling mistakes, syntatical errors and stupid comments are intentional.
