Windows Programming

Posted 01 June 2001 - 12:28 AM

I have decided to learn windows programming this summer. I took Null And Void's advice and went to winprog.org. and i realized that windows programming has a lot of options and it really hard to learn. But i sware that by the end of the summer i will produce a windows program and post it on the web for all of you to download.

also any tips on windows programming will be help full.

oy how i will all of this i do not know but i will learn slowly but surely

Sounds great, If you want to learn real programming stuff and messeging architecture then dont use AppWizard but develope your program from scratch.  Hook Message que by callback function, process each message, define your own message and process it.  Create windows, shape it your own.  Kill (Exit) your program by non standerd way (like give a close command button).  And above all purchase a good book for windows API function, message and common controls.  Most importent-> if you need any help them mail me.

Yeah i am not going to use the wizard i am going to make windows from scratch. And the coolest thing about your message is that i actually understood most of it. hehehe

Not only am i thinking about purchasing a book but winprog.org is teaching me.
(hmmm yet another ad for winprog.org)

ya it is nice place to learn, but you should purchase a good book or couple of books on API, Messeging and Common Control.  It become handy for you.

Winprog.org is always what I suggest for learning how to program the Win32 API, but it does lack coverage of the more advanced topics. Most of those can be found in the MSDN or other places online though.

Stupid flood posting something... Anyway, back to what I actually wanted to say: MFC was (and would be if I used it again) a horrible experience. I wish that kind of insanity on no other person :). I may use another Win32 Template set, but never MFC again...
