    Question Some Questions of Windows Programming ?


    My name is Ben, and I am new here.

    Recently I started learning the subject of windows programming , after understanding the basics of C++, and I have some questions.

    I am learning the subject of windows programming by this tutorials:

    But beside this, I hear a lot about the MFC library, I didn't realy understand the diffrenece, but my main question is - what is the simplest way to develop a windows program with C++ ? and what is better, and more relaible ?

    I am working with Visual C++ , is there a specific type of programming that is better used with Visual C++ for the windows programs?

    Thanks, and sorry for my amatureness (just started learning it...),

    Basically, you can start with MFC, the replacement isnt mature yet. The easy thing to do is use the wysiwyg editor (what you see is what you get) in visual / .net (all versions from 5.0 on have it) to create a dialog based application, drag and drop a few gui items, and begin to learn to use them. Once you get a feel for the simple things (buttons, edit boxes) you can branch out to harder material (printing, hot bars, custom controls).
