    Visual C++ .NET questions

    Hello! I'm a newbie at vc++. I need some help.
    I've made the toolbar and some dialogs but I dont know how to use them.

    How do I create .exe program that will have its window, toolbar and stuff?

    How do I open a certain dialog when action in toolbar is pressed?

    How do I retrieve data user entered in dialog?

    How do I add content to Extended Combo Box and Combo Box? Is it possible to Combo Box contain data from a file?

    That would be it for now. Please help me! I need some answers...

    Also, some links to Visual C++ .NET tutorials would be awesome...

    You should really post this in the Windows section as it sounds like you are talking about windows programming, just send a PM to a Mod and have them transfer it...

    If you are not asking about windows-based answers state it and we can help you particularly if you can be more specific in your questions.

    If you already know C or C++, then you need a good book, like Programming Windows, by Charles Petzold. And, here's a tutorial to get you started.

    If you are new to C++, you'll need to learn some standard (text based) C++ before moving-on to the advanced GUI stuff.

    Thumbs up

    For books, I can also reccommened Sams Teach Yourself Visual C++ .NET in 21 Days. The whole book focuses on creating GUIs with MFC.
