    I just started learning VC++ in June, so I know where you're coming from. I Googled for resources a bit, and just had to read up quite a bit. That and a bit of practice can go a long way.

    I found this helpful: Win32 API Tutorial

    Also, you can find infinite resources at the MSDN site.

    I'm sure others will have more suggestions, too. Good luck. =]

    If you want to use Windows API, then Charles Petzold's "Programming Windows" is the best way to go. Online tutorials do not give you enough information. If you want to reach your full potential, you have to get that book. I've had it for only one week, and I already made my first tic-tac-toe game.
