User Interface using C/C++ RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am learning on how to create an interactive user interface using either C or C++.
    So, may I know which method should I go for? Win32? MFC? Window forms? etc..

    Thanks in advanced.

    MFC will get you the furthest most quickly for a native C++
    application. Windows Forms is better done in C#.
    As MFC is mostly a thin wrapper around Win32, it always pays to have
    some knowledge of its basics. If you do go for MFC, try to work
    through the MFC scribble tutorial.
