How to use Win32 GUI Project for User Interface
« on: August 12, 2014, 08:40:18 pm »
Dear All,

How we use Win32 GUI template to design graphical user interface, I googled to find information related to that but it turns out to be that it is not used widely for graphical interface design. If I'm wrong can you give me the entry point on how to design a toolbar, statusbar, etc.. with Win32 GUI project template?

Regards,

Type MSDN Win32 api documentation in your favourite search engine.

But keep in mind that C::B doesn't have visual UI editor for Win32 projects only for wxWidgets projects.

It's fine as long as knowing that every visual control can be achieved with creating it during the run time. As a result User interface doesn't change so often in application life time of course if you are not planing to add some fancy ribbon like controls etc..

CAn you confirm that Win32 GUI can be used in run time and is not obsolete among the other GUI interfaces,

Regards,

If you are a masochist you can do you app in Win32, but if you're half sane and want to do UI easily then you choose something else (qt, wxwidgets, etc)
