My wording may have been a bit poor, my project I'd like to work towards (by creating other small applications and games to learn the necessary skills) is something like the OpenSteer project(http://opensteer.sourceforge.net/). I want to have triangle characters that I will program to navigate and steer themselves towards certain goals. I know that qt can make the window for the game, but would it also handle drawing the triangles and simple graphics?
What tools (like qt or swing) are available for making game graphics? Could they be carried over to 3d graphic projects (not necessary by any means, just curious)?

The harder part is getting input from the user, for example entering text to a field and hitting enter and submitting that string to a function which handles it. Or clicking a button or changing the color of the button if you hover over it. Which windows are currently visible, and which is "active" for input etc... all these things I just manually hammer out with spaghetti code
