So I was suggested in a different thread that to get the Win32 API (GUI?) for my C++ programs, a good way is to download SDL.
I downloaded SDL-1.2.15, but now I want to know how to use it in CodeBlocks, to make a basic C++ program use the Win32 API.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards, King of the Boneheads.

A simple google search could get you started. Anyway, check out lazyfoo.net. He's got some nice sdl tutorials.

I put the link to Lazy Foo's site on the other thread we were on.

That site has a whole once-over on configuring SDL to work with Code::Blocks for Windows(that's your current platform, right?).

I'll put the exact link here to the tutorial: --> [url="http://lazyfoo.net/SDL_tutorials/lesson01/windows/codeblocks/index.php"]http://lazyfoo.net/SDL_tutorials/lesson01/windows/codeblocks/index.php[/url]

I know you'll probably (I was the first time) be a bit confused with the settings and such, but just read thoroughly if it's somewhat difficult, and if you have any problems you can report back here!
