Good MFC book?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I''m trying to make some tools for my game, but I don''t like the basic MFC UI. So anybody know if there is a good book that explains how to derive those MFC''s classes, and implements our own UI, so it will look better?

"Learn Visual C++ 6.0 Now" is a good book. It reviews basic C++ concepts, and then guides you through an entire paint program that includes splitter windows, message handlers, dialog boxes, saving, printing, color, etc.

I definetly reccomend this one!

Hi again guys, thanks for replying, but I''m not looking for a book to learn MFC (I did that already), I''m looking for a book (or maybe any online tutorials) of how to derive MFC''s UI classes, and implement my own UI.

Ok, thanks guys.

I agree with ECKILLER choice but have something to add. Programming windows with MFC is great for learning all the basics. Programming Visual C++, Fifth Edition by Kruglinsky goes more in depth on some concepts. i would recomend using the books together. the Kruglinsky book is a pretty good refrence.
