I just started with c++ a few weeks ago. I''m used to do loops, if, case and so on. But now i want to built a graphical environment for a project. But i don''t know how. Can you give me some source code or some links where I can find something about 2-, 3-dimensional environments (3-dimensional preferd). Thanks :-) Fin@l_CountdoWn

The best way to solve your problem is using DirectDraw and Direct3D or OpenGL,
it''s a high-performance and easiest solution. About DirectDraw/Direct3d and OpenGL,
there are a lots of tutorials and articles on this web-site,the other relate web-sites
and the DirectX SDK documents or OpenGL documents,therefore I don''t prolixly these here.

Of course,if your application doesn''t need high-performance or the other reasons,you can using
the Windows Graphics Driver Interface(GDI) instead,but the performance of the apps using it is
very lower really...

Hopess you can get some benefits from the above.
