I'm looking for a Windows-centric Window management library that will allow me to create controls similar to those we find in the Visual Studio IDE, or something along those lines. I'm not very fond of MFC, and the current project this is intended for requires a redesign of the User Interface, so I'm shopping around for libs that will allow me to have good looking forms. Any tips?

I think I'll have a look at wxWidgets, it seems to be my cup o'tea.

Thanks all, R++!

WTL's not too bad if you're looking for some UI elements in a C++ package, but don't want all of the MFC bloat. Still not a walk in the park to work with, but at least it's not Win32. But then again I still like to work mostly in straight Win32 with a light wrapper class to help things work in C++ (but I think that's just because I'm masochistic [smile]).
