Please help with windows basics

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have been working on learning the basics of windows programming (why can't Linux be the one with a world wide monopoly ?!) and was wondering how to display text and get user (text) input from a window? Thanks, tlak

Those links help with shell applications ...

For windows apps you should take a look at the msdn documentation of the Win32 API ...
Or even better the .net API is you work with that.

If you work with the Win32 API this might be a good starting point:
MSDN - Windowing

Under dialog boxes there might be what you are looking for:
MessageBox and MessageBoxEx seem to be Dialogs that pop up and let the user enter simple input stuff ...

With Visual Studio Express you should have a graphical UI designer ... so I assume you work with the Win32 API.

Sounds good you guys. I haven't looked at anything just yet, but it all looks to be very helpful. By the way I am coding in C++.
