GUIs for C++

  1. Like the title says, I'm looking for a way to put a GUI on the programs I have written. Which isn't all that many, probably only 3 or 4. I just started to get into C++ a week ago. I'm still a novice, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. I'm using Microsoft's Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition IDE. Any ideas?

    Visual C++ can do the GUI for you just fine. You just drag and drop the GUI elements onto the application's main form and edit the code behind them.. Any VC tutorial will tell you how to do this. Mind you, if your current programming experience is command line only, then getting your mind around GUI programming may ba a bit difficult. Again, a good book or a tutorial will help you in this.

    If your current programs are command-line only, then you can't just convert them to GUI. You are better off creating a new GUI application in VC and then copy-pasting any relevant code from your existing programs.
